Help - how to reset DDIC during installation

Hi,

I am completely new to installing NW for ABAP and am trying to install a 1610 system using SWPM.

It stops at starting instance and the error log reflects what is shown in this note.

https://launchpad.support.sap.com/#/notes/1889802

How can I reset the DDIC password during the installation - can I use the Linux command line? Obviously the installation has not completed so I have no access to SAPGUI or SU01.

    For me it looks like an issue with your system in general, not with the DDIC password.

    Look at this fragment:

    Instance DEV/D01 reached state UNKNOWN afterhavingstateSTARTING.Givingup.
    ERROR 2017-08-2409:00:40.969(root/sapinst)id=controller.stepExecuted errno=FCO-00011

    It looks like the system doesn't start. And in my opinion that's why it can't connect.

    Please paste dev_disp and dev_w0 log files and let's solve the mystery :-)

    Hi,

    could you please send the full error message?

    The provided note doesn't really suit your install, as you are installing S/4HANA 1610 and the note is for SAP Business Suite 2005.

    Anyway I believe at this stage the system is already running, so you could log in there with user SAP*.

    Best regards

      Sure - here is what SWPM says:

      Test logon to SAP System DEV failed. SOLUTION: Make sure that the system is started, that the user DDIC exists and that the password of user DDIC is correct.

      Here is sapinst.log

      sapinst.log errors and sapinst_dev.log is below
