"Yet it's your fault that guide is wrong?"

Actually, the story quite clearly says he *didn't* follow the document. he should have used the credentials generated by the script, instead he copied the credentials from the document.

The fact that the document contained the production credentials is an error but the implication is that he would have been ok with those.

Of course, he should have been supervised so that's also an error. should he have been sacked? Probably not. and certainly not in the way he was.
