NWDS asks for OS User, deployment from NWDS fails

Hi everybody!

Since today, when opening NWDS (7.3 SP 08 PAT0004), after a few seconds I get prompted to "Enter your user name and password for ADM or another operating system administrator on the system host" in a dialog box titled "OS Logon to SAP JEE Host". There is no hint whatsoever which system host this refers to (local workstation with developer workplace or development portal or CBS or...). Whatever credentials I enter, nothing happens except that this box keeps on popping up. After clicking on "Cancel" for three times, the box does not reappear.

After that, when I try to deploy a DC to my development portal server from the Development Infrastructure perspective, I receive an Error saying

"Deployment failed, Error Code 0. System TP2 not responding.








When I deployed before, I got prompted to enter deployment credentials when starting the first deployment of the day, entered my own user-id and password and everything worked fine. My admin crew tells me that nothing has changed except that some weeks ago some pathed have been installed onto the netweaver portal server.

Does anyone have any clue on what may be misconfigured or what credentials have to be entered ?

    These are credentials of users who have deployment role/action in NW Java Application Server where code is to be deployed.

    Either get it assigned the same to your id or use administrator's id.

    Ok, just to follow up on that:

    Obviously, my basis team installed a new kernel on the development portal server introducing some new security features. One of these requires authorization whenever NWDS requested diagnostic data, logs (ListLogFiles and ReadLogFile) or whatever from the NWDS default JEE server. The correct credentials would have been the <sid>adm user and password. As my basis team does not like to issue such data to the development team, the corresponding property "service/protectedwebmethods" in the default profile "DEFAULT.PFL" was changed from the default "SDEFAULT" to "DEFAULT". After that, the problems were solved.

    Thanks everybody!
