XI Installation: SAP System Account+Password->Login failed

Hi All,

This is my first attempt in installing XI.

I have installed SAP Web AS 6.40 ABAP+Java System and am trying to install XI now.

I can also confirm that my J2EE engine is up and running. I ran the J2EE example on HTTP using port 50000.

Here is my basic config:

VMWare with Windows 2003 Server SE, 60Gigs dedicated HDD space, 2Gig RAM, MS SQL Server 2k Enterprise SP4.

My Problem is that when I run the "XI Installation" from "NetWeaver Components Running on Java" I get asked for my SAP System Account's (user: l01adm) password. I know what my password for System account is, but for some reason I get "Invalid Password" error message from SAPInst GUI program.

Since I am very new to SAP Web AS and XI, there could be quite a few reasons why this is not working.

Could anyone please shed some light my direction regarding the possible things that could be causing my problem?

      Hi Shabarish,

      Thanks for the reference. I used a 9 character password for SAP System Account. Changed the password to 8 characters for that account in my Windows OS User settings and that worked.

      So it seems that the limit for the user password should be 8 characters and that is not enforced when the SAP System Account gets created.

    1) >> 60Gigs dedicated HDD space

    80 GB is advicable ,

    2) Can you Restart the J2EE Engine again and try it out.
