SAP AS ABAP 7.51 Developer Edition - Error database login 'sa'

I am following the newbies guide (https://blogs.sap.com/2017/09/04/newbies-guide-installing-abap-as-751-sp02-on-linux/) to install the developer edition 7.5 SP2. During installation I receive an error "Unable to generate a new password for database login 'sa' ".

Below is the sapinst_dev.log entry.

ERROR 2017-09-15 11:13:40.513 (root/sapinst) (startInstallation) [/bas/749_REL/bc_749_REL/src/ins/SAPINST/impl/src/sapinst/CSiStepExecute.cpp:1117] id=controller.stepExecuted errno=FCO-00011

Any suggestions?

    This is for 7.51. It appears that the password I provided was not complex enough.

      Is there any password policy that need to be followed for setting the password.

      I am also getting the same error. I have changed the password to simple dictionary word for which 'suse' show warning 'Password is too simple' before confirming.

    Are you talking about the 7.50 or the 7.51 Developer edition?

    Unfortunatelly the database license for the 7.50 has expired. There is a fix but it is recommended to install NW 7.51 Edition.
