Unable to access MySQL on the Itversity Lab



I am trying to log onto the MySQL on the lab and I am generating the following output:

[patrickorourke160893@gw02 ~]$ mysql -u retail_user -h ms:itversity.com -p .
Enter password:
ERROR 2005 (HY000): Unknown MySQL server host ‘ms:itversity.com’ (0)

The password I am using is: itversity.

Is the password incorrect or is my syntax incorrect?

Kind regards,


Please use mysql -u retail_user -h ms.itversity.com -p
