Try creating a new user:

bin/magento admin:user:create --admin-user="testing" --admin-password="123123q" --admin-email="testing@example.com" --admin-firstname="Test" --admin-lastname="Test"

When you get error:

No Administrators role was found, data fixture needs to be run

As a quick fix:

Delete value of following from table core_config_data:

  • [Exception] No Administrators role was found, data fixture needs to be run – Brad Holmes Feb 23 '18 at 17:10
  • maxpronko.com/blog/… have a read. I think it might be that your role name has changed. – Greg Feb 23 '18 at 17:13
  • my role name is admin – Brad Holmes Feb 23 '18 at 17:28

it seems that your account is locked, try unlock by command prompt. open cmd got to you magento directory root and type the following command.

php bin/magento admin:user:unlock <username>

username will be your user name of account. it will be like

php bin/magento admin:user:unlock admin
  • nope unlocked and still the same – Brad Holmes Feb 23 '18 at 17:07
  • in magento 2 it always show that your account is locked when you type wrong password. try create new admin by following command php bin/magento admin:user:create --admin-user="admin" --admin-password="123123q" --admin-email="admin@example.com" --admin-firstname="Admin" --admin-lastname="Admin" change new admin username , passowrd and email – Atif Aqeel Feb 23 '18 at 17:09
