You may be running into this bug: https://www.illumos.org/issues/1540
If so, then your root password is there, but is expired, and you'll need to bring up a terminal window and reset it like so:

openindiana151a:~$ su - 
su: Password for user 'root' has expired 
New Password: 
Re-enter new Password: 
su: password successfully changed for root 
OpenIndiana (powered by illumos)     SunOS 5.11     oi_151a     September 2011
