RFC_ERROR_LOGON_FAILURE: Name or password is incorrect (repeat logon)

Hi,

My application on portal is getting the following error.

com.sap.mw.jco.JCO$Exception: (103) RFC_ERROR_LOGON_FAILURE: Name or password is incorrect (repeat logon)

I have tested the JCo successfully. Also, we are using username and password, not SSO.

I read in earlier posts that this error is because of incorrect username and password. But both are correct and my JCo is tested successful.

Can someone kindly guide me as to what could possibly be the problem?

    If you see an RFC_ERROR_LOGON_FAILURE error, then it is definitely due to incorrect logon parameters used.

    Please make sure that the user you are configuring in your JCO destinations (example SAPJSF) has a productive password in the backend system and that the password is not locked.

    Check the below link to view JCo traces for further information:

      HI Shanti, Need your help in this error.

      " com.sap.conn.jco.JCoException: (103) JCO_ERROR_LOGON_FAILURE: The initial password has expired (request a new one) on 12.34.56.789 sysnr 01. "

      I have created OLAP Connection and test it.. Its working fine yesterday. But today we are trying to connect it (OLAP Connection b/w BI Production to BOBJ Production), its gives this error.

      Our User is Communication User and i think password will never expired for communication user.

      Help me for this..

      Thanks and regards..

    Hi,

    This error will get because of the incorrect or expired password. Change/Reset the password of the service user as said by Shanti and maintain the same password for the Jco connection. It will definitely work.

    Thanks,

    VV.

    HI,

    Sorry for the late response.

    It is true that I am using a service user. I have check the password and it is working fine.

    Although recently, we had the basis person reset the password of the service user. I have updated the JCo with new password. Is there any other place this needs to be updated because of which I am facing this error? I hope it is not because of the password reset.
