We have LDAP server and sync to Portal and CRM,BI. When i create new user in Portal,BI,CRM it will ask me to change the initial password.

How to set the ABAP instance profile parameter to not changing initial password.

    That's not possible - there is no such customizing switch.

    The basic idea behind this hardcoded security rule is: if a password was set by an administrator, then this person also knows the user's password (which however is supposed to be a non-shared secret); therefore the user is prompted to change the password at the very first time of usage.

    Regarding password synchronization:

    that is the wrong approach - it will not work for several reasons (there's also an SAP note on that issue, just that I do not have the note number at hand, right now), e.g. the password policies of different systems are different (especially the password history which is always kept locally in each system).

    If you have multiple systems and user which are supposed to use the services provided by them, then use a proper SSO (Single Sign-On) solution to achieve the desired effect.
