UME in ABAP: unable to create User in Portal or change Password


Hello experts,

i have two problems with my user management:

<b>1) Users cannot change their initial password:</b>

The order to change the initial password comes again and again (also the three input fields "current password", 2x "new password")

<b>2) I'm not able to create users via UME, only in ABAP.</b>

When I try to create a single user the error message "An error occurred in the persistence; contact your system administrator " appears.

When i try to import users (via txt-file), following errormessage turns up: "The UME/ABAP user management connector is set to read-only mode and therefore rejects the creation request for user TESTxx"

I am able to change the adress-data (street, zip-code, ...) of an user which i created in su01, but i'm not able to chage the first- or surname.

We are using a Double-Stack (Java+ABAP) Portal system (Netweaver 2004s, EP 7.0), the usermanagement is in the ABAP system (dataSourceConfiguration_abap.xml), wea are not using an ldap.

Here a snippet of the dataSourceConfiguration_abap.xml:

  <dataSource id="R3_DATASOURCE" className="" isReadonly="false" isPrimary="true" policyEnforced="true">

The SAPJSP user has the SAP_BC_JSF_COMMUNICATION - Role with an active profile.

I've already read note 718383 and

Hope this information helps you to help me =)
