License Error, unable to change password

I have Splunk 4.3 for Linux 2.6 kernel on CentOS 6.

I have switched my license to a free one, and the license manager shows this license group properly, and I have restarted Splunk and the OS multiple times.

However when I go to the page to change my password, it says:

Your account
Change full name, email address, default app, timezone or password.

Your account is an Enterprise license-level feature and is currently not available on this instance.

To enable this and other Enterprise features, learn more about licenses at Splunk.com or contact Splunk Sales directly.

Splunkd response: Current license does not allow the requested action

Ok. I already had a username and password set so I found a way to remove it.

Splunk Free version has no login or password thus you cannot change password
