rfcnpass converts passwords to all upper case

All,

I am trying to synchronize my passwords on my SAP systems by using rfcnpass which is delivered in the RFCSDK. I am using the latest 7.1 version. This worked great until we upgraded our SAP systems to 7.0. Now when I run rfcnpass it changes the password to what I enter, but it converts it to all upper case. Does anyone know how to get by this issue ?

Sean

    There are several approaches you can take to solve this problem. I will give them to you in order of preference and lets see how far we get...

    1) Do not synchronize your passwords. Use a password vault if you have many systems or a real SSO. Synchronizing passwords is pre-destined to cause problems - either because they do grow out of sync anyway, or the systems' policies differ or because your weakest common password rule is dictating the security level to the strongest system and when you get hacked you will not know where it came from (if you notice at all...).

    Cheers,

    Julius

      I fully agree - also stated in [SAP note 376856|https://service.sap.com/sap/support/notes/376856].

    Sounds like a bug - kindly report to SAP via the official support channels (message component BC-MID-RFC).
