Learning vm - logging in through SSH

Hi,

In my company I don't really have any option to host a VM. So I converted the VM to an AWS EC2 AMI, see here: http://docs.aws.amazon.com/AWSEC2/latest/UserGuide/ImportVMImportImage.html

It works, it is running when I try to reach it through https, I can access the Puppet web console.

But I can't access it through SSH. It does accept the login, but I don't know the password. Also, the private attached to it by AWS is not accepted. My guess is that AWS is actually not able to add that key in the VM...

Documentation by Puppet mentions that a password is generated when launching and shown in some splash screen. Obviously, AWS doesn't show me any splash screen, so I'm stuck!

Does it use a default password? if so, what is it? Is the VM packaged with a key pair that I can get somewhere?

ANy other ideas?

Thanks! Dennis
