I've downloaded mysqlmonitor- . I've installed the MEM server and at the end of the installation the wizard directed me to the MySQL Enterprise Dashboard Setup. So far, so good.

The MySQL Enterprise Dashboard Setup asks me to provide password. In total it wants four passwords for: 

 - My Oracle Support Credentials
 - Enterprise Credentials
 - Create Administrator
 - Configure Agent Credentials

I filled out all the form fields including all the passwords and password confirmation input fields. I press "complete setup" to finish the setup.

Now it bails:
"There was an error.

    * U0080 Your passwords do not match.
    * U0017 The Enterprise Credential passwords do not match."

Well, nice but would you mind telling me *exactly* which passwords are not OK?

First message says "U0080 Your passwords do not match.". What does "U0080"  mean? Is that of relevance for the user? Which of the four password input does it refer to?

Next message says "U0017 The Enterprise Credential passwords do not match.". Is "U0017" of any relevance for the user, if not, why is it there? 

Is "The Enterprise Credential passwords do not match." an addition for "Your passwords do not match."? It does not look like it is because I see two distinct codes and the messages appear in different lines. Or maybe "Your passwords do not match." and "The Enterprise Credential passwords do not match." refer to different things?

If at least the input fields with the invalid values would have been highlighted as its a standard web pattern, I could make a guess.

How to repeat:
Configure Dashboard. Fill in passwords. I don't know which passwords must not match to get the exact message - and that's exactly the point of the bug report. I, as a user, do not know what I made wrong.

Suggested fix:
Improve the user interface. 

 - clear messages
 - no confusing codes
 - highlight input fields that require action

As we are at it...

"There was an error.

    * U0008 Your credentials do not appear to be valid.
    * U0145 U0120 Unable to import Advisor Jar. You may download the jar manually from the Enterprise website and import it on this page."

Would you mind telling me *which* credentials are invalid?
