Issue/Introduction

A user account has been created for a user in the Broadcom Support portal, but that user is unable to login.

Clicking password reset gives the error: "Password reset is not allowed for this account".

Cause

The user has a federated account through SAML.

Resolution

Login to the Symantec Enterprise Security console first to authenticate properly with SAML, then load the Broadcom Support Portal.

If this still fails, try flushing the browser's cache and try again.
