User getting locked automatically

Dear All,

I am facing one problem. One of user in my system is getting locked automatically with below error:

Logon Failed (Reason = 53, Type = H)

As per this error, it is because of some HTTP module/service is using wrong password of the user. But my ECC system is not connected to any other system. Also, when i switched on trace using SM19, i found that SAPMHTTP program is accessing this user which has wrong password, as a result user is getting locked.

But problem is my system is not connected to any other system or service which use HTTP service. Also SAPMHTTP is standard program and does not have reference to a particular user. I checked on SDN but did not find relative thread.

If any of you have faced this problem, please let me know.

Thanks

Sunny

    Hi,

    Check in SICF if this user is used to authenticate a service with an outdated password.

    Check also HTTP RFC destinations in SM59.

    Just 2 ideas...

      Hi,

      Oliver is right, this might be used in the one of the services. Go to STAD and filter with this user, this will give you the service which are executed by the user, then goto sicf and change if the user or password accordginly in the logon on data tab.

    Hi,

    Activate logging with SM19/Sm20 .You can find the reason and then analysis.

    Please see the following SAP Note.

    Note 1493272 - A user gets locked automatically

    Note 320991 - Error codes during logon (list)

    Regards

    Activate the trace for that user so that you can come to know exact reason.

    Also check if any RFC is using this user.

    Hi Sunny,

    Goto ST12 and turn on the trace for the user which is getting locked.

    There is an option to turn the trace for "Tasks & HTTP" which could be helpful.

    The trace should tell what point the user is getting locked.

    Hope this helps.

    Regards,

    Varun

    ST12 trace might help to know the root cause also while activating the trace you can filter for the program SAPMHTTP.so that it will trace the user with that program only.

    Sunny,

    It seems that this user is being used in some of your satellite systems where in password is maintained wrong.

    If you are unable to find the same in your ERP system, check in other system if this user is maintained somewhere.

    These locations might differ from your code configuration, SICF services, RFC destinations, catalog configuration etc. etc.

    Sometime it become very difficult to identify the location, my suggestion is to delete the user or let it be locked (if this issue is pertaining for one user) and see if some one reports any issue, you will come to know who is culprit.

    Regards,

    Hello,

    Make sure the user have proper authorization and tracking the user and STAD would help to find the root cause of locking.

    thanks

    Sunny,

    If its related to ABAP program or even HTTP , some ST22 dump must have been generated , have a look there as well.

    Hello Sunny,

    can you tell me how you solved this problem?

    I have exactly the same behavior, no http RFC connections, and no service activated in SICF.

    Thanks in advance for your help!
