Setup steps leading up to network configuration were completed, and the machine was moved to a computer room or another site. Physical access to the box is either cumbersome or not possible at this point.
|Issue||How to access RSA SecurID Appliance without physical access to the machine when setup fails at resynchronizing the administrative token|
Setup step for resynchronization of administrative token fails in RSA SecurID Appliance
|Resolution||Access to the RSA SecurID Appliance can be gained via Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP). When attaching enter "machinename:8198", you will get a SecurID prompt, but the administrator is not yet in the SecurID Challenge Group. You will be able to use the password you specified for the administrator to gain access. Once RDP access is gained, you will have full access to the machine. Likely causes of failed resynchronization are incorrect time, time zone, or date.|
