Default password for 'spark' user?

Default password for 'spark' user?

I tried running 'start-slaves.sh' as 'spark' user but while connecting to slave machine, it's asking for password. I do have the privilege to change the password for 'spark' user but doing so might stop some processes. Could you please suggest something to tackle this issue?

"spark" user is a service user, hence it has no password. you should switch user either from root or sudo user.
