Splunk Fundamentals Part 1: Login failure in Module 13 lab

New Member

I'm taking the Splunk Fundamentals Part 1 the free training.
On Module 13 Lab, I see a warning that says

"This lab will not work with a free license. Please only do this lab if your trial license has not converted to a free license."  

Should I skip this lab? The step says to "Log out of Splunk Enterprise using the uname > Logout menu." and "Enter admin for user name and the password of WrongPassword."
When I follow this direction, I keep getting "Login failed."
What should I do, please help?

I got a response of "0 events," when using the supplied answer for Lab 13, Number 5, with the trial version.

You're running on Splunk free or Splunk trial ?

This should work in the trial just use your admin account's credentials.
