Setup worked when following instructions

I saw a lot of poor reviews due to problems logging into the FMC after install. Following the instructions on Cisco's website gave me no trouble at all, and I was able to log in after setup was complete.

It seems some people may have missed the following steps:
- During instance creation: "Under Advanced Details, add the default login information."
Sample Login Configuration:
#MC
{
"AdminPassword": "",
"Hostname": ""
}
- When setup is complete (after approximately 30 to 40 minutes), the Instance Screenshot should show a message similar to “Cisco Firepower Management Center for AWS vW.X.Y (build ZZ)”... You should then be able to log in to the newly created Firepower Management Center Virtual using SSH or HTTPs.

Thank you very much for this. I started off from AWS and followed the screens, but without your comment, I would not have realized the password needed to be setup while launching the instance.
