Neo4J initial password set not getting accepted in neo4j 4.1.9

We are having trouble in using the password we set as part of neo4j initilisation.

We are on Neo4j 4.1.9 and trying to setup initial password using neo4j-admin set-initial-password, which was successful and even auth.ini reflacts that as now I have a user named neo4j there, which wasn't there before running this command.

But when we try to login using the set password it's giving error(there's no chance of typing the password wrong as it was simply copied from command used for setting the password)
The client is unauthorized due to authentication failure.
