NW 7.1 installation - error name or password is incorrect

Hi,

I am doing NW 7.1 installation; current phase is central installation -> Restart instance (abap).  I am getting the below error, log from dev_rfc.trc file:

**** ERROR file opened at 20121128 144354 EET, SAP-REL 720,0,62 RFC-VER 3 1184803 MT-SL

T:2 Error in program 'sapinste': ======> Name or password is incorrect (repeat logon)

T:2 Error in program 'sapinste': <* RfcReceive [16] : returns 3:RFC_SYS_EXCEPTION

>TS> Wed Nov 28 17:14:42 2012

T:2 Error in program 'sapinste': ======> Name or password is incorrect (repeat logon)

T:2 Error in program 'sapinste': <* RfcReceive [17] : returns 3:RFC_SYS_EXCEPTION

I have checked the ddic pw in client 000 and it works fine for me.

What could be going wrong?

Thanks in advance for your help.

Abdul

    Hi,

    I think there was some error is reading or writing the password that was provided by the system during the ABAP restart. I'd suggest you try manually restarting your instance.

    If not try searching for more into the logs. If you see that the DDIC user password is failing and is got locked, you might want to unlock it and revert it to the factory password. Check the user and compare from the following table

    Default Passwords for Standard Users

    User

    Description

    Clients

    Default Password

    SAP*

    SAP system super user

    000, 001, 066

    all new clients

    06071992

    PASS

    DDIC

    ABAP Dictionary and software logistics super user

    000, 001

    19920706

    EARLYWATCH

    Dialog user for the Early Watch service in client 066

    Regards,

      Hi Toni,

      Did you check DDIC user for client 000?

      Try login into client 000, check if DDIC user is locked?
