I'm unable to completely set up the SAP HANA Express Edition.

First of all I need a runtime to access to prepare for my upcoming HANA Application Certification. So i thought of using the Express edition(via CAL). I created an instance and am following the steps mentioned in this tutorial.

I'm getting stuck in changing the system user password. I keep getting "* 10: authentication failed SQLSTATE: 28000" or Connection failed error messages.

Is there a simpler and straight forward way to access the development platform for HANA or do any of you know the fix. Thank you in advance.

Will provide a cut/paste or screen shot of the output from the HXE setup?

I suspect you might be trying to provide the 'new' password when the 'original'/starting password is being requested.
