Hello Experts,

Currently, we installed New HANA Database Revision 112.03 on SUSE linux 12. But we're not able to access the HANA LCM (Life cycle Manager) using SIDadm user.

When we try to open LCM using HANA Studio, we're getting a popup screen to enter user credentials (see in attachment). When we enter them its not accepting the credentials. And after entering multiple times on the screen. We're getting error Unauthorized: User authentication required.

We also added LCM role sap.hana.xs.lm.roles::Administrator for SYSTEM user but same issue.

Any ideas, please?

Thanks & best regards,

On our SAP HANA Academy YouTube channel, there is a playlist about installing SAP HANA:

Could you check out this video about LCM and see if any of the alternatives solve your issue?

The XS LM role is to access the LCM app in the SAP HANA cockpit not studio.

LCM requires operating system authorization, so the <sid>adm user, not the database SYSTEM account.
