'Change your password' error when log to designer using SAP Authentication


Hi All,

Here is the scenario. I want to create a universe on BW.

1. I try to log into designer using SAP authentication (by choosing SAP as the authentication option)

2. In the system name its the name of the CMS

3. The username and password that I entered were for my SAP system. (Yes, my SAP role is already present in CMC)

4. After I entered, I got a message saying ' You must change your password to continue. If you do not change your password, your account might get disabled'.

5. I am prompted with dialogue box to change my password.

6. After I enter a new password (fairly complicated), it gives an error Failed to change password/ Details : [repo_proxy 15]. Sessionfacade:: changePassword - User password has not been updated (Incorrect password).

I know that's not the case because I am able to log into SAP GUI and into CMC using my SAP credentials.

Any advice please ? Why is this happening in designer ?
