Schwab Bank Downloads Failing after Setting Symantec VIP OTP (One Time Password)

Set up Symantec VIP OTP (One Time Password) on Schwab. All my brokerage accounts worked fine after Quicken relogin, but my Schwab Bank download failed and continues to fail saying "Schwab may be down" and "The system may be unavailable ... Try again later".

    Hello @kimardenmiller

    I am sorry to hear that you are experiencing this issue with downloads. Thank you for drawing the attention of the Quicken Community to this matter.

    Before I go any further with troubleshooting recommendations, I do have a question about this problem. Do you know if the instance used to link your Charles Schwab accounts to online banking services might have changed when the VIP OTP password was setup? Also, what Connection Type are you using? You can always check this by going to Accounts > Settings > Downloads in the menu at the top of the screen while Quicken is open with one of the affected accounts selected in the Account List on the left-hand panel. 

    I look forward to your reply and hope to continue working with you on this issue in this discussion, if necessary. 

    Thank you,

    Quicken Jared 
  • SOLVED: Not sure why it failed the first time, but solved by:

    1. Removing download preference from all Schwab accounts, then

    2. Accounts > New > Investments > Brokerage > Charles Schwab & Co. > (Select Link to connect existing accounts to my brokerage and Schwab Bank accounts).
