Can anyone let me know the default username and password for Logging in MongoDB which i have recently downloaded from turnkey template.

Which version are your using?

Which version are your using? And where/which build? E.g. Hub, VM install from ISO, etc.

I just tested the v14.0 appliance via the Hub and I could log in fine using "admin" and the password I set on launch. It should work fine from the ISO install too (the Hub instances are built from the ISO).

Same problem here. Can't

Same problem here. Can't login after using template (proxmox) no matter what username/combo I try.

Are you using the old one or the new one?

V14.0 definitely works. Although you'll need to install from ISO.

Ok right you are...

Hmm, I'll look into it some more.

Ok I have a workaround...

Apologies to everyone. We will fix this and re-release a fixed build. In the meantime here is a workaround:

In a terminal set your new password:

then copy/paste this:
service mongodb stop
mongod --dbpath /var/lib/mongodb --noauth --fork --logpath /var/log/mongodb/mongodb.reset-admin.log --bind_ip
mongo admin --eval "db.changeUserPassword(\"admin\",\"$NEW_PASS\");" 
mongod --dbpath /var/lib/mongodb --shutdown
service mongodb start

[updated] to use the proper syntax for running mongo within a bash script (i.e. "--eval"); plus added "--bind_ip" when starting mongo with "--noauth" (so that mongo will only accept local connections while running with no authorisation required).
