How to recover a lost password

Hey guys,

for some unknown reason, one of our installations of Netweaver Sneak Preview decided it didn't like the password we gave the administrator account, and now authentication won't work. I probably mistyped it, although I have no way to be sure of that. Given that I have the Adminstrator account to the machine (Windows Adminstrator), short of wiping the installation off the hard disk and starting over, how can I recover and/or change the Administrator (SAP Administrator) password?

Thanks in advance

Hi Yaakov,

you can activate the emergency user "SAP*" in order to be able to login and reset the Administrator password.

Hope this helps,
