Cannot login to salesforce production environment from eclipse

I am trying to access the salesforce production environment using the eclipse plugin. I can do this with the sandbox but it doesn't appear to recognise my login credentials when I try to go into production. I can login fine via the web but in the logs for my user it says "Invalid Password" next to my login attempt. My password was not wrong and neither was my security token. What is going on here?


Try to login via Data Loader and see if it works any better.


If not, I'd reset the security token.  Only thing I can think of.




The reason I found was that I was using a security token in the security token box. For some reason my production environment will login a user without a security token but wont login one who supplies it. Same with the data loader. The sandbox will login a user with or without it.


Is this normal behaviour? 

It's not out-of-the-box normal behavior, but it all depends on what your company has requested.  It's certainly a possible configuration.  You might want to check with the primary admin to see why they have requested that particular configuration.
