Add ability to set password in new UI if it wasn't configured during installation
you can install FreeNAS without password. but upon first login to the new UI you are forced to input something into the password field - otherwise the "sign in" button stays greyed out. currently you HAVE to go to the old UI to get the change password dialog and set a password, to be able to login through the new UI afterwards.
offtopic question: when i test with https://download.freenas.org/11/MASTER/latest/x64/ - as i did - this is considered "Master - FreeNAS Nightlies"?

Tested in the latest nightlies (FreeNAS-11.2-MASTER-201807190857).
This is still an issue. After the initial set up and not creating a password there's no option to set one up from the UI.
1. Download latest nightlies.
2. Install and go through the set up; choose <cancel> when it ask to create a password.
3. Go to web UI and notice the issue.
Sidenote: going back to the legacy UI still prompts for the creation of a password.

- Status changed from Ready for Testing to Passed Testing
- Needs QA changed from Yes to No
Testing with a FreeNAS VM installed with FreeNAS-11.2-MASTER-201809200901:
Install FreeNAS with no root password in a VM. Review set password dialog in the UI at first boot. Set root password and log in. Log out and back in to confirm root password is set.
