Stuck without a way back in...

Greetings all -

I am a newbie to the SAP world and I have a major problem on my hands. My company has recently took over a program with a devlopment SAP system in place (SOLMAN and IDES) running on SQL. The problem is the previous admin did not leave any of the administrator accounts (SAP*) in the hands of the customer.

Is there a way to recover access via the SQL tables? We urgently need in ASAP.

Any suggestions?

    Dear Wes,

    I recommend you look at this thread

    Lost password for SAP* and DDIC

    You will also need to check the value for the profile parameter login/no_automatic_user_sapstar. You can check this parameter in transaction RZ11 and adjust the parameter in RZ10 if required. A restart is required after changing this parameter

    You can use the command line utility OSQL.EXE or SQLCMD.EXE if you are using SQL 2005.

    It is strongly recommended not to alter data in the SAP database by using database tools such as OSQL. This is one of the very few occasions where you have no choice.

    Goodluck and reply to this post if you have any more questions.
