Global.Licenses privilege on the vCenter Server

I finally have vCenter6.0 installed and I am trying to update licenes and I get the error message of "To view and manage licenses, you must have the Global.Licenses privilege on the vCenter Server system where this vSphere Web Client runs."  I found online where it says "Log in to the vSphere Web Client with the Administrator@vsphere.local" but I have no clue what the password for "Administrator@vsphere.local" is because I never set up anything with that username.  Could you please point me in the correct direction?

When you install vCenter Server, it asks for a password for the Administrator@vsphere.local username, this username is the overall super user for the vCenter Server.

This account is also used, the first time you login to vCenter Server to setup permissions, and other Administrators.

The current account you are using is clearly not an overall administrator of the vCenter Server.

Do you not have any idea what the vCenter 6.0 Administrator@vsphere.local password is ?

Okay.  Obviously I missed something during the install.  I will need to redo the install and reset that.

It would be best, and record it.
