Hi, I assume this is from the VM image? If so, is this first time you login to the VM? Please run "~/bin/ --action change_pwd -d SystemDB" and "~/bin/ --action change_pwd -d HXE" to change TEL_ADMIN password.

Hello ALL

I am facing the same issue. I did install the HANAExpress edition(VM+ application). Next time when I am logging I am getting the same error message as above.

From /Bin, If I execute --action change_pwd -d SystemDB

It is asking me for following details, I am putting the same Master password for all the three(SYSTEM, XSA_ADMIN and TEL_ADMIN), which I have created after booting up the DB in VM but it still gives me the same error. Can you please advise what is that I am doing wrong?

Also is this something I need to do everytime I start the DB, any quick way to get it done automatically?



You can delete /usr/sap/HXE/home/.init_boot after the password is successfully changed.
