Cannot log into localhost nucleus - "Wrong credentials or the user does not exist."

@andygreen250 were you able to access localhost in the past? if it doesn’t show up in the Nucleus tab of your OV Launcher, you may need to connect to it first. Assuming you already have set up the local nucleus service, you connect via the following steps:

  1. first, go into the OV System Monitor by going into the Local Nucleus Service setting or access it via http://localhost:3080/ (from the sound of it, you’ve already done so, but i am just putting the first few steps here just in case)

  2. check to see if all Nucleus services are all up and running under the Apps section. you should see all services in green

  3. if all are good, go back into the OV Launcher, Nucleus tab, and click Connect to a Server

  4. on the authenticate prompt, enter localhost

  5. this will create a new browser tab requesting login credentials

  6. by default, the credentials that you used during OV Launcher setup should work here, but there were others that either lost it or using the predetermined simply do not work. in either case, there’s fallback login credential when installing OV, which is admin for both fields. alternatively, you can choose to create account. i’ve seen others circumvent login issue with this method as well. i would suggest you use the one you used during set up first and if that doesn’t work, try inputting admin instead.

  7. once done, you should be able to see connection success message in the same browser tab

  8. you now should be able to see localhost in your Nucleus Navigator and Launcher. furthermore, you access directly from within other OV apps should be cleared up. (i am using admin because it’s just easy to remember)
