OpenShift system:admin requires credentials

As outlined in this issue, you may run into a problem where you want to log into the OpenShift cluster as system:admin from one of your master nodes but it keeps asking for credentials.

$ oc login -u system:admin
Authentication required for https://localhost:8443 (openshift)
Username: system:admin
Password: 

There are probably several solutions to tackle this. The one that worked for me is:

$ export KUBECONFIG=/etc/origin/master/admin.kubeconfig
$ oc login -u system:admin
