I am attempting to install Graphana on my Azure VM running Ubuntu 22.04 and Docker 26.0.0. via a command line interface. I found instructions at link [Run Grafana Docker image | Grafana documentation] - specifically I used the CLI command

sudo docker run -d -p 3000:3000 --name=grafana grafana/grafana-enterprise

This command seemed to work well, producing screen output of various Pull complete and ending with

Status: Downloaded newer image for grafana/grafana-enterprise:latest

I next used my browser to connect to port 3000 of my/Azure VM. I see the “Welcome to Grafana” screen with Email or User Name and Password to be entered. I previously ran a older version of Grafana/oss. The previous user and password are not accepted by the new Grafana. I am out of guesses.

What user name and password do I use?

Try the default
