I was able to create just one database after installing odoo 9 on Ubuntu Server (16.04.1). I am able to duplicate the same database , but not able to create new database

@Brian Gunderson. I have confirmed the password I have used is the same in odoo-server.conf file.Also I am able to successfully duplicate database with same password. I have checked the log file too, but no error message there.

@Brian Gunderson. Thanks! I tried with a different browser without remember password and was able to create database. Wonder how the browser can change the password with Auto-fill.

Thanks again.. have spent hours trying to sort this issue

This is normal when having multiple databases with an IP address only.

Often this error is a matter of checking that the Master Password entered in the Create Database step matches the admin_passwd in your odoo-server.conf file. Any chance that your browser or a password management tool is changing the password as you enter it for the new database creation?

  have you tried the password "admin" ?
