TOTP not working with Login for Windows

    Applies to:
  • SecureAuth Identity Platform
  • Legacy SecureAuth IdP
Deployment model:
  • Cloud
  • Hybrid
  • On Premises
  • Version Affected:  All


    When trying to login to Login for Windows using an Oath / TOTP device, an error is returned


    "something you entered is not correct."


    If Sadiag is enabled, the error seen is "Failed to validate OTP locally: valid_otp=0, error: 1436"


    A mismatch has occurred between the registration realm OTP timeout and the L4W realm OTP timeout. 



    Match the Passcode Change interval on the L4W/Api realm to the Device Enrollment realm. 


    Special Considerations:  

    If the Devices were originally enrolled as Oath Seed, they will be migrated to Oath Token from 9.2 onwards if you have both Oath Seed and Oath Token mapped on a realm. 

    Make sure realms setup like this have the correct Passcode Change interval too.
