    Hi @johngeorge142,

    Please remove the back slash from your command and pay close attention to the user and password as they are case sensitive.

    In addition, please familiarize yourself with best practices around sharing passwords in public forums, and their security implications. Understanding whether it is acceptable to share sensitive information this way is critical for novices and experts in the IT field.
