Can not login local Alfresco user


I have an issue with logging into Alfresco share. I have user account (user has admin permissions, if it's important) created locally in Alfresco, not loaded from LDAP. 

When I try to login with its username and correct password I get following error in share:

Your authentication details haven't been recognized or Alfresco Content Services may not be available at this time.


There is following error in tomcat log file:

SEVERE: Servlet.service() for servlet [wcapiServlet] in context with path [/alfresco] threw exception

I tried to create another user with the same permissions, the same password and it's working without any problems. 

Can you give me an advice what shoul I check or what might cause this problem.

Did you try using this new user with admin permissions to modify the non working admin user?

Re: Can not login local Alfresco user

Does authentication subsystem use SSO? What is the authentication chain configuration?

Similar problem was noticed with Kerbeors SSO.
