Cannot access sapdb backend from Content Server?

I am unable to access my sapdb from my Content Server via CSADMIN or with the /ContentServer.dll?serverInfo page.

I run a Content Server on Unix - version 640, build 16. Here's what I've verified thus far:

- SAPDB is up and running.

- x_server process is running

- apache is running (httpd processes)

- Standalone gateway on same server is running.

In the apache error logs I find the following message:

ErrorDescription: Cannot start Document request, reason: SQLConnect

failed, [MySQL MaxDB][LIBSQLOD SO][MaxDB] Invalid authorization specification;-4008 POS

(1) Unknown user name/password combination, Error

Code: -4008\r\nX-ServerId: server="nwkwcs";serverPort="1090"\r\nX-

ServerType: SAP HTTP Content Server\r\n

I had not changed my SAPR3 user or password in the database, so I am confused why this started happening all of a sudden?

In an attempt to fix, I reset SAPR3 to custom password and ran report

RSCMSPWS to store the new password in the cs.conf file. However, the

same error is still a result.

So, I deleted and recreated SAPR3 based upon SUPERDBA profile with default "SAP" password.

Then, I commented out DBNAME and PASSWORD in cs.conf file. So, it should be using the default SAPR3/SAP login to the database.

However, this did not help either.

I looked at note 706664, however I cannot even get the repositories to a defined status. I cannot connect via CSADMIN?

Here's an excerpt from the http://server:port/ContentServer/ContentServer.dll?serverInfo page for

further analysis:

serverType="SAP HTTP Content Server";serverVendorId="SAPAG";

serverVersion="640"; serverPatch="0";serverBuild="16";





contRep="Z_EKM_IWBHELP";contRepStatus="offline";contRepStatusDescription="SQLConnect failed, [MySQL MaxDB][LIBSQLOD SO]

[MaxDB] Invalidauthorization specification;-4008 POS(1) Unknown user name/passwordcombination, Error Code: -

4008";storageVersion="17";storage="SAPDB";buildLevel="1";contentStorageName="SDB";contentStorageHost="localhost"; security="1";contRepDescription="Content Repository for IWBHELP";

I am unsure why the Content Server will not connect to the database?

Points to all helpful answers!
