Authentication error for user XSA_ADMIN

I am setting up HXE 2.0 to reside and run on a single box - not client-server separate boxes.

Using Ubuntu 16.04 as host and VMware Workstation 12.5.1

"Start Using SAP HANA 2.0, express edition (VM method)" as guide.

Start SAP HANA 2.0: hxehost login: hxeadm

change passwords per document - everything is fine

Test your Server Installation: HDB info - everything is fine

Record Your VM's IB Address: /sbin/ifconfig - everything is fine

Test XSC, XSA, and Web IDE:

1.) Check that the XSE engine is running - everything is fine

2.) Go back to your VM. Log into XSA services:

xs login -u XSA_ADMIN -p <password> -s SAP - this is where things stop

When starting HXE for the first time - you are required to change the strong password for the app and DB. I am using this password to log in - however I get an authentication error for XSA_ADMIN.

I do get the message that https://hxehost:39030 XSA is installed correctly - but then the login fails.

I am assuming the system has SSO setup so that when the password is changed upon initial login it is changed for the other users. Any ideas?

Thanks much for you assistance.

    If you followed the getting started guide of HXE 2, then you have set the password for the XSA_ADMIN user the first time you logged in via hdbsql. If you then are not able to login via xs login, you use the wrong password (maybe a typo during setup, maybe a different keyboard layout ... several reasons are possible).

    Why you do not set a new password using the SYSTEM user.

    For instance goto the web based dev workbench catalog view, open an SQL console and execute the following command (of course set the password you wanna have appropriate to the password rules):

    ALTER USER XSA_ADMIN PASSWORD myNewPassword100 NO FORCE_FIRST_PASSWORD_CHANGE;

    You can reach the catalog view of your HXE 2 instance using URL: http://hxehost:8090/sap/hana/ide/catalog/

    I am getting exactly the same authentication error for user XSA_ADMIN.

    I am 100% sure that I enter correct password which I specified for DB.

    What is wrong here??

    Hi Barry,

    I recommend to delete current virtual machine hard-drive and start the whole procedure from scratch where your "master password" won't contain any special characters (like !, @, ...). Use for password only letters and digits and it should work then.

    Hi Dipak,

    When VM is turned on for the first time, initial prompt is for OS user and next prompt is for master password. Master password is used for all the DB and XSA user logins. Please make sure to use master password for XSA user login.

    Lakshmi.
