Hi Guys,

I am trying to login to the Minishift cluster. But it is showing me the below error.

$ oc login -u system:admin
error: username system:admin is invalid for basic auth - verify you have provided the correct host and port and that the server is currently running. error: username system:admin is invalid for basic auth

How can I solve this error?

Hi@akhtar,

Instead of login with the system: admin, you can use the admin account. For that, you have to run the below steps.

$ minishift addon apply admin-user
$ oc login -u admin
Authentication required for https://192.168.99.114:8443 (openshift)
Username: admin
Password:
Login successful.
