SDM Password

Hi,

Is there anyway to reset the SDM password?

It is possible to unlock/reset the j2ee admin password.

(/people/benny.schaich-lebek/blog/2004/04/13/how-to-unlock-your-java-admin)

However SDM password is still a mystery.

    Hi Kiran Gangadharappa,

    <u>1. How to change the <b>SDM Password</b></u>

    Just enter following lines in your COMMAND LINE:

    1. enter SDM directory as: cd C:\usr\sap\J2E\JC00\SDM\program

    2. Execute the following (just copy-paste)

    sdm jstartup "sdmhome=C:\usr\sap\J2E\JC00\SDM\program" "mode=standalone"

    3. Execute following line (replacing Password1 with your new password for SDM)

    sdm changepassword "sdmhome=C:\usr\sap/J2E/JC00/SDM/program" "newpassword=Password1"

    4. I suggest also revert SDM back to integrated mode

    sdm jstartup "sdmhome=C:\usr\sap\J2E\JC00\SDM\program" "mode=integrated"

    5. Start SDM &#61664; StartServer.bat

    2.Goto cluster-data --> Global server configuration --> services --> com.sap.security.core.ume.service

    3.Double-click on the property "ume.superadmin.activated = TRUE"

    4.Double-click on the property "ume.superadmin.password=<Enter any password ex: abc123>"

    5.Save.

    6.Restart the engine.

    STEP-2: Login with "SAP*" into portal

    1. http://<host>:<Port>/useradmin/index.jsp

    2. Enter userid / password as" SAP* / <password ex: abc123>"

    3. Search for "Administrator" user

    4. Reset or change password for "Administrtor"

    STEP-3: Disable "SAP*"

    1.Start the Config Tool C:\usr\sap\<SID>\<engine-instance>\j2ee\configtool\configtool.bat

    Ex: D:\usr\sap\F02\JC00\j2ee\configtool --> configtool.bat
