J2EE_ADMIN password change problem


Installed PI/XI (NW2004s).I did not start configuration yet.

Just After that, I tried logging into Visual Administrator, I encountered “Password expiry problem.”

I tried to login into Visual Administrator and provided login credentials and "Password Change" Window appeared.

I entered oldPassword and newpasswords and clicked "change" button. It brings me back to the same "Password change screen" again and again.

I tried changing J2EE_ADMIN password from UME also. But still the same problem. I looked at Visual administrator log files and found the following error at



predecessor system - Cannot set new password.


Caused by: Could not set password for user UACC.R3_DATASOURCE.J2EE_ADMIN


Caused by: <b> The UME/ABAP user management connector is set to read-only mode and therefore rejects the update request for principal "UACC.R3_DATASOURCE.J2EE_ADMIN"</b>













Do let me know where in configtool can i change this property so that i can change J2EE engine password.

    Hi Siva,

    Try opening Visual Admin if your not able to login with username(administrator) and password. Problem with NWD2004s do the following steps.

    C:\usr\sap\J2E\JC01\j2ee\configtool->configtool.bat->open it

    1. Click on Secure store

    2. Right you will find :

    admin/password/J2E->retype your admin passowrd which you gave during installation=>SAVE properly

    Restart the server and try login visual admin

    Regards, Suresh

    The user J2EE_ADMIN cannot change its password, because the ABAP system is read-only. Either you need to make the connection to your ABAP system read-write (give SAPJSF the read-write version of the connection role), or you need to log in to your ABAP system directly as J2EE_ADMIN and change the password there.

      - <b>First you have to check what is the client set by parameter</b> ume.r3.connection.master.client

      - Then log on to the ABAP system in this client

      - Access SU01 and change the password of user J2EE_ADMIN

      - Log off from the system and access again with the user J2EE_ADMIN

      - You will be asked to change the initial password

      - Then in Config Tool, select the 'Secure Store' node, and change the

      parameter admin/password/J2EE_ADMIN with the new password

      - Restart the J2EE Engine

      - Try to log again in to Visual Administrator
