If you are unable to access the OpenAthens account administration website at https://admin.openathens.net, the error messages will be one of: 

Either the username or password you entered were not correct.
  • Wrong password
  • Wrong username
  • Too many incorrect attempts have locked you out

Resolution: Reset password. If there's no-one at your organisation who can do this for you, contact your OpenAthens support provider. 

Your account is not an administrator account
  • You are trying to sign in with a personal or local account,  

Resolution: sign in with your OpenAthens administrator account.

If you do not get as far as seeing the sign-in page

...and there is no server error message from us, then you will need to speak to your networks team.
