Solaris 10 Install has NO PASSWORD

I installed solaris 10 recently and ran through the entire install and it did not once ask me for a password. Here is the output of uname -a:
SunOS ISCPRIVATE 5.10 Generic_118833-17 sun4u sparc SUNW,Sun-Fire-V210

Now, I cannot ftp into it because there's no password set and I would really like a password for security's sake. Please advice on how I can set the password post-install.

just use the passwd command to set the password for the user login you are using for ftp.

if you just say ..........  # passwd and press enter, it will change the password of the user you are logged in as. for example if you are logged in as root and want to assign or change the password, you just say
# passwd (press enter) <-- this will prompt you to change the password of root assuming that you are logged in as root

# passwd <username>  <--- This will change the password of a perticular user.
ex:
# passwd tom    <---assigning or changing a passwd for the user.

For more information and all the available options do, # man passwd
