At this time, the controller is only being released as a debian package and has only been tested on Ubuntu Server 12.04.

Do you guys have any idea why username:sdn and password:skyline are not working to login to controller. I am sure controller is running. When I enter username and password it says "Invalid user & password combination specified!"
