Why can't I login with Admin?

Issue:

It's quite common scenario for a Sitecore consultant to spin up a environment from existing implementation. After you reset password for the Admin user, you still have the error prompt on your face:

Investigation:

And you checked in the database, the user ("B09BBCDE-9B3C-4DCD-B69E-67F615CE01E9") is not locked or not approved. Then there's another place can explain this:

<sites>

...

<site name="login" virtualFolder="/sitecore/login" physicalFolder="/sitecore/login" enableAnalytics="false" database="core" domain="custom" disableXmlControls="true" />

...

Resolution:

The default domain has been changed, and you have to login with sitecore\admin rather than admin, or change domain back to sitecore.

 

Missing OpenSSL lib DLLs when installing MongoDB 2.6.4

Investigation:

As read https://jira.mongodb.org/browse/SERVER-19086, some OpenSSL DLL files are missing from MongoDB 2.6.4 download, and it causes the problem to install on Windows 10. 

Resolution:

You can either download OpenSSL and find the missing DDL files there as suggested in the article. I just have it upload here
