RILOE II and Schema Free Authentication

I've updated a couple of our RILOE II's to f/w 1.20. This is supposed to support Schema Free Authentication but I cannot get it to work.

We already use Schema Free Auth for our ILO's so I thought I understood how to set it up.

Everytime I try and test the setup I get an "Invalid Credentials" response. But on an ILO with the same setup it works fine.

Are there any differences between ILO and RILOE that I need to be aware of?

There doesn't seem to be an "Allow Local Accounts" button on the RILOE set up either - does this mean no local accounts are accessible once Schema Free authentication is enabled?

Many thanks, I'd forgotten to set up the Administrator Groups Access part.
