Environment:

When the password has any of the 2 unsupported special characters, the appliance will accept the password without any error message. However, logging in with the password will prompt an error that the username or password is incorrect.

Resolution:
These special characters !@#$^&*<>?-=./”()|are accepted by the appliance.  Any combination of these characters should work.
