    You only can activate SAP* emergency user, if you lose your password.

    Hi,

    You cannot retrieve the password from the SAP or Database level - although this is in the table USR02 but is encrypted. You need to do the following at the database level so that you can login as SAP*.

    DELETE Table USR02 where BNAME=SAP* and MANDT=800

    This delete the user record of SAP* from the table USR02. And then once deleted, you can login as SAP* using the default password "pass".

    Once you login try to reset the password of the user you want in txn su01 and then re-login with that user-id.

    Thanks, Dibya

    Hi Sri,

    You can follow the procedure described by Dibya already.

    One further information, there is one parameter login/no_automatic_user_sapstar which needs to be set to 0, so that after the sap* is deleted from USR02 table the default sap* will become active in SAP kernel with password "pass".

    if login/no_automatic_user_sapstar = 1 (which is default value) then do the additional steps,

    - set login/no_automatic_user_sapstar to 0 in instance profile.

    - delete sap* from usr02 by running the sql.

    - shutdown SAP and restart to make the parameter effective.

    then you can login with sap*/pass. reset password of DDIC and admin user.

    Remember, you can't change the password of sap* which is active now in kernel. So you've to create another user SAP* and lock it. It will ensure that you've given your own password for newly created SAP* and it avoids any security threat.

    Further, you can set login/no_automatic_user_sapstar to 1.

    Thanks,

    Debasis.
