MDM7.1 SP04 on RHEL5 - Password for sidadm doesn't authenticate


I was installing MDM7.1 SP04 and sapinst prompted me to input the password for <sid>adm. I would provide the correct password but sapinst would fail and say incorrect password. This was on a Red Hat 5 install and I could successfully logon as <sid>adm with the same password that I provided to sapinst.

We use VAS (Vintela Authentication Service) to validate the credentials of our named users against Active Directory but <sid>adm is a service account that is not configured to use VAS so it should be validating it's credentials locally.
