Interesting. Well, that's definitely the problem.

If you replace "{Simple}null" with "manager" and restart the server, the password will be
automatically obfuscated by the server.

Would be good to know how the null got there... Perhaps you ran into an earlier problem that
resulted in an encryption failure (resulting in a null). If you restart the server (password
is obfuscated) and then restart the server without seeing the error, all should be well...

No problem. Glad we got this figured out...
