SAP NetWeaver Application Server ABAP 7.4 on SAP MaxDB - default password

Hello colleagues,

I have deployed this app.server (see subject) on the AWS cloud but unfortunately I cannot log-in. I've tried all known default passwords for SAP* and DDIC with no result. The documentations says - "You specify the master password during instance creation in the SAP Cloud Appliance Library"... It didn't ask me to specify the password ((

Hence, I have a few questions:

- What's the default password and where should I change it;

- How to unlock blocked accounts in SAP instances (SAP* and DDIC are blocked due to lots of failed attempts);

- How I can access the file system (this VM is on Linux), so... Putty???

    You can unlock them:

    update <schemauser>.usr2 set uflag='0' where bname like 'username what you want to unlock' ;

    You can use emergency SAP* user if you are totally lost with the passwords.

    Like this:

    update <schemauser>.usr2 set bname='SAPP*' where bname like 'SAP*' ;

    and you need to change the parameter:

    login/no_automatic_user_sapstar to value of '0'

    If you do these steps you can logon with SAP* user and 'pass' password....

    after you finished you should change back login/no_automatic_user_sapstar to value of '1' in the profile !

    Hope this helps,
