    Solution to solve the actual issue :

    For the SAP system to use standard default NT authentication

    Please refer to this link:

    1. Database login:

    SQL Server login with System Administrator privileges, that is this login should be member of the sysadmin fixed server role on the target SQL Server. If such a login does not exist, you have to create it on the target SQL Server. The SAP multi-connect mechanism allows both integrated security logins and the use of SQL Server authentication. For security reasons, we highly recommend to use integrated security (Windows authentication). If you use Windows security, leave this field empty.

    2.  Password / Re-enter password :

    If you have decided to use integrated security, leave these fields empty. Otherwise enter the password of the SQL Server login.

    The above pointer was used to solve the login issue but we still had issues in getting the schema visible in SAP BW. As the user ID was left blank we were not able to get the schema view for the <blank> user.

    Note to be applied to solve the Schema issue :

    note 1091929 : &#61664; Link

    so now you can enter the schema to be used in DS creaton screen.
