Can’t manage authenticators when authenticating by password

NetIQ Advanced Authentication 4.8


I can’t manage authenticators when I was authenticated by password.


If you are trying to manage authenticators please authenticate by authenticator, not by password. Authenticator management will be denied when you have one or more enrolled authenticators, and you authenticate by password. It has a security reason: passwords are more weak and less secure, than authenticators.
