AW: Riverbed console authentication, encrypted User-Password

Pretty weird. I set the Shared Secret again (in CLI) and had exactly the same results. So I tried setting the shared secret using the Riverbed web interface and now it works perfectly. Will write a new ticket for Riverbed support.
Sorry to have bothered you, thanks for the help.
