Why can't we change the administrator password?

Hi frndz,

I have some doubts and I want to clear those doubts. It looks to be silly, but it will be helpful to me if u post your suggestions.

Why we should not change the administrator password frequently?

We are setting the administrator password for an option-->Never to be expired?

How to lock the administrator password?

How to provide security to the administrator password?

All suggestions are welcome...

Best Regards

Harshavardhan

    Hi harshavardhan reddy,

    Keeping aside the recommandations to implement restricting Administrator userID lock out after certain no of failed attempts.

    You are highly recommanded to do below items.

    - Please do not give 'Administrator' ID password to all

    - If any one required 'Administrator' level of access, upon evaluating the business purpose you may add his/her id to the role as ID 'Administrator'

    - The best practice is to change the all UserIDs (except standard/service IDs) password once in Quarter.

      Hi,

      I asked generally not particular to any SAP Software.

      Suppose make it as "SAP Netweaver administrator" who has all the permissions and all the roles has been assigned like nwdi administrator role, nwdi developer role, super admin role e.t.c.

      Why I asked this question is suppose some 'X' user can try 'n' no of times to login with administrator user-id.

      So by any wild guess if he matches the password, that will be a matter of security right.

      Regards

    Hi Harshawardhan,

    X' user can try 'n' no of times to login with administrator user-id

    A username is locked once you have tried to loggin with wrong password three times.
