  2. If the account already expired:
    1. Contact Symantec Technical Support and request a case be created to track the renewal. 
    2. Obtain approval from your sales rep to extend the account while the renewal is being processed, and if any tokens should be added to the account. .
    3. Once the approval is received, have the sales person add a note to the Technical Support case. 
    4. Technical support will reach out to the Enterprise Authentication team to process the temporary extension.
    5. Once the order is processed and the account is fully active, allow support to close the case.
