Unable To Connect To MongoDB Basics Database

I made sure that all the login information was correct in Compass, but I still get an “authentication failed” error. Help?

what are you putting in for the login?

did you put the following:
Hostname: cluster0-shard-00-00-jxeqq.mongodb.net

Username: m001-student

Password: m001-mongodb-basics

Replica Set Name: Cluster0-shard-0

Read Preference: Primary Preferred

also did you make sure to select primary preferred?

That did it. Is it possible I can get an extension on the labs for lesson 1?

Many thanks for your assistance.

Hi Thomas_80083,

I am afraid but we cannot extend the dates :frowning:

Good Luck!
