Keywords: Magento - Virtual Machines - How to - Credentials
My steps are:
1. after the VM is launched and the credentials are shown...
2. browse to http://SERVER-IP/admin
3. enter credentials shown in console
login succeds and I am taken to the Magento admin dashboard
after several attempts there is a lockout period
My extra steps:
Using magento-cli, I executed "magento admin:user:create ..." and created my own admin user with a known password.
Unfortunately, this user is not able to login at http://SERVER-IP/admin where the Magento admin login page is displayed. The result is the same as above. A rejected login and I stay at the login page. If I retry too many times I am locked out. The user name and password are correct (because I just created them).
