Hi

Thanks a lot, it works. Although I am still confused that why the same json file was used in other server is ok, I have to add this field in it. Anyway, thanks, I will confirm it with my colleagues

I assume they followed the instructions https://support.ptc.com/help/thingworx/platform/r9/en/index.html#page/ThingWorx/Help/Installation/Installation/install_java_and_apache_tomcat.html

...

4. Configure the Administrator password.

...

9. Start Tomcat

...

14. Change initial Administrator password -> c) Delete the initial Administrator password from platform-settings.json
