In the Replication section of the course I realized during the validate step the failure was the result of me creating the admin user with a different password than the suggested one on the lesson. Now when I attempt to log into the primary node I get one of the secondary nodes. This is hindering me form completing the course. What should I do to fix the situation so I can move forward?
Can you post the command you are using to connect the cluster? and the output you are seeing?
Having a different password for your admin user should not cause you to connect to a non-Primary member of the replica set.
