DDIC Password fails in middle of Solution Manager Installation

I'm performing a new install of Solution Manager 7.0 (4.0) on HPUX IA64 11.23. This is a brand new Landscape. The installation has halted at phase 29/47 "Check DDIC password", and reports the error:

Test login to SAP System SMA failed.

SOLUTION: Make sure that the system is started, that the user DDIC exists and that the password of user DDIC is correct.

From the SAPGUI 7.10., I was unable to login as DDIC or SAP. I used the master passwords given in the install. I also tried the default passwords as mention in another thread password '19920706' for DDIC and '06071992' for SAP.

I was able to login with SAP* password PASS after adding login/no_automatic_user_sapstar=0

to the default profile and restarting SAP, but was unable to change the DDIC password because change and transport system not configured.

How do I get past this point in the installation process?

    For changing DDIC password you don't required CTS configured. If you are able to login through SAP* then go to SU01 and change the DDIC password to your master password(which you given while installation) and continue the installation.

      I am not able to continue on with the installation. I get the same error.

      "Test to SAP System SMA failed. .....".

      I had updated the ddic password via the SAPGUI login as SAP* on the clients 000,001. DDIC did not exists on client 066, so created it. But when I login as user DDIC, it does not take the password. It give the error ">>>>> DB-Error- 0 ". The dev_icm file reports:

      [Thr 9] *** WARNING => IcmJ2EEScheduleFunc: Cannot access "/sap/public/icman" -

    This problem is now resolved. The problems of:

    1) The "Check DDIC password" phase of sapinst of SM 7.0 was failing with DB-Error 0.

    Fix: Install latest kernel patch. Problem was fixed with NW 7.0 kernel patch 133. I installed kernel patch 159. The kernel patch had to be installed via the old method of using SAPCAR to untar the files, backup kernel dir, shutdown sap, and copy files over to kernel dir. See note 19466.

    2) The Warning messages

    • WARNING => IcmJ2EEScheduleFunc: Cannot

    access "/sap/public/icman" -

    please check node in TA sicf [icxxman_mt.c 2206]

    was resolved by TA SICF by SERVICE HOST -> active

    to activate the complete default_host subtree.
