Default login not working on AP-303HR

Attempting to set up the first AP-303HR in Instant mode (and let the rest replicate from that one), but login fails from the Welcome to Instant, Virtual Controller screen. Have tried admin/admin as well as root/admin and admin/root, that was used in some of Aruba's other products and all keep saying Login failed.

They have been reset numerous times. They are US versions and are brand new. No, I do not know what Aruba OS version they are running, but I havent seen Aruba change the default name/password through all the different OS versions.

Any ideas on alternate login(s) or what is going wrong?

Apologies on the double post. Ignore this one.

Are you trying to login to it on the GUI or via SSH?  Are these devices new, or could someone have provisioned them to the cloud previously?


EDIT:  Have you tried the factory reset procedure?  https://support.arubanetworks.com/Documentation/tabid/77/DMXModule/512/Command/Core_Download/Default.aspx?EntryId=31399
