Root login fails with Rocky Linux VM image

Downloaded the Rocky prebuilt variant.
I don’t know how to login to the console as the login mentioned here:
Installation — NS8 documentation (
doesn’t seem to work.
Also the login is NOT mentioned for the prebuilt procedure at all (it should be repeated there) - I just assumed it would use the login mentioned in the installs from scratch.

Please ignore the above, copy paste (!) error.
But it remains that in NS8 Install documentation, for prebuilt images, the default root password HAS to be mentioned.
