    Hello Anu,

    the SAP* user is hard coded in the sap kernel.

    If the user does not exists in the table USR02, then the default password is valid.

    Hi Anu,

    Take a example..Normally it is recommended that do a client refresh from SAP* user only. Suppose we have changed the password and our security administrator has given no access to this user. So at that time we can delete that user. And after that we can use that login with the sap* default password with full access.

    If the user will be there in USR02. than it will accept password from that table and if the user doesn't exists it will run it from kernel.
