We are currently trying to install a fresh HANA IDES system with SWPM:EHP7.

We are having issues with the installation of the HANA DB as shown in the picture:

Our logs are producing following output:

The log clearly states, that the password for HDB is wrong (missing upper-case character).

But sapinst corrected us to use a password to fit this and was content afterwards.

So we don't really have an idea what went wrong.


Help is appreciated. I'm pretty new to this.


Best regards.

    Hi Franz,

    Did you give the right SYSTEM user password during the execution?

      Thank you Suhil for the push into the right direction.

      I solved the problem by using another Master Password which also has upper-case character.

      In the check this was not a requirement.

      Best regards.
