ABAP 7.51 trial: Why can I not create packages or objects with user SAP*?

Hi everybody,

first of all sorry in advance : I am a Linux and ABAP-Newbie, so this might be something very simple, but I really got stuck at this point and could not find a similar question on this page so far:

I installed the 7.51 trial version as in the well-described "Newbies Guide: Installing ABAP AS 751 SP02 on Linux" and the related documents. The installation worked well!

I also could connect to NPL via SAP-GUI and installed the digital license key in transaction SLICENSE.

But now in SE80 Object Navigator I am not able to create packages or programs , not even in local objects/ $TMP.

It is always this error message "No changes for user SAP* allowed"

Client: 000 User: SAP*

Thanks for any help and kind regards

    Hi Oliver,

    the user SAP* is a specific user, the first user created when you create a client (mandant) in SAP.

    this user exists even if you doesn't create-it, it is kernel hardcoded. (there is way to disable it)

    So SAP uses this user to allow administrator to connect to the system when the license is KO. It's why this user can't do business transaction & development. All the others users are lock.

    Maybe if you are in a trial SAP, you should connect to the client "001" with the user "developer" and the password is in the documentation (or you could change it using user SAP* in client 001 with transaction SU01
