After install I had to run the asadmin create domain from the command prompt due to the identified problem of AS_JAVA variable pointing to the wrong place. During this I set the admin login as "admin" without a password. The command worked correctly and the server starts without problem.
When I attempt to browse to the admin gui I get the following in the server.log:
SEVERE: The log message is null.
java.lang.RuntimeException: Cannot find annotation org.glassfish.config.support.Create with value _register-instance on method public abstract com.sun.enterprise.config.serverbeans.Server com.sun.enterprise.config.serverbeans.Servers.getServer(java.lang.String)
and a host of further errors which are included in the attached log file.
I am then dropped at the login page for the admin gui, and using "admin" and no password will not allow me to access.
This is a fresh install after trying and failing to install various other options & packages. Previous versions were uninstalled and the glassfish directory deleted.
