BI 7.0 Installed but errored out during DDIC password check !!!!!!!


i installed nw04s system with AS ABAPBI JAVAEP+EPC on MS SQL server ....its IDES software btw...

everything went fine till 'Import ABAP' and even 'Running ABAP Reports' proces.... but while running the process 'Check DDIC Password', it popped a window with OK and Cancel saying that

test logon to SAP system SID failed .Make sure that the system is started that the user DDIC exists and the password of user DDCI is correct

I dont udnerstand why it would fail to logon to DDIC on client 000.... becoz i set the master password and SAPInst should remember the password in some encrypted form and use the same for logging .!!!!

anyways after this error, i started SAPMMC and logged into the system and tried DDIC in 000, 001 with master password and default password (19920706) as well with no luck...but worked fine in client 800 with my master password....

What should i do now ? any suggestions would be highly appreciated....

    Delete the user SAP* in 000 client

    And login to 000 - SAP* (user) - PASS (Password).

    now reset DDIC password.

      Actually SAPInst is trying to connect to client 001 with I deleted SAP* from 001 client in sqlplus and restarted the server and tried logging with ddic in 001 with my master password, PASS, pass, and even with 06071992 with no luck...

      any other suggestions ?

    SAP* is blocked by default, to unblock put the parameter: login/no_automatic_user_sapstar = 0 in de DEFAULT.PFL and restart the instance.

    Furthermore an ungrade of the SAP-kernel will work, and after restarting SAPINST it will prompt for a new password for DDIC.

    (Happend to me with a system copy of ECC 6.0 SR2)
