SDM password issue



From my NW studio, I am not able to deploy my web dynpro applications directly into SDM. Somehow the password is not correct. Here are few things I tried & don't know where to go from here....

1) Changed the password of SDM using the changepassword command. Restarted J2EE server, NW studio & tried new password I still get the following error...

Used following command:

C:\usr\sap\JKS\JC00\SDM\program>sdm changepassword "sdmhome=C:/usr/sap/JKS/JC00/SDM/program" "newpassword=abc123"

2)Changed the hash in the sdmrepository.sdc file & restarted J2EE server. Then used "sdm" as the password but still didn't help.

In both cases I get similar logs. Here is the log message in NW studio:

Does SDM password has to match with any other password? Thanks
