any particular reason why after logging into any context I'm getting kicked off. so for example I telnet to mgt addr configured on admin context and get prompted to enter username followed by password. i enter the correct username and password, but upon doing so i'm getting kicked off.

the username and password is definately right..

anyone seen this before?

Do you try to login with default username/password (admin/admin)?

If so, you may rejected with the following message.

ACE20 login: admin
