SLD user locked and JCO connections
I have a peculiar situation.
Under Visual Admin -> SLD Data Supplier, initially there was an error message and connection was not successful (when clicking the crooked arrow button) to initiate a manual data transfer.
This was resolved when some logs specified that the SLDDSUSER cannot have an initial password.
I changed the password on the UME, relogin to the portal with user SLDDSUSER and entered a new password during the change password prompt.
Changed the password on SLD Data Supplier and the manual data transfer was successful.
However it became very odd, when I go to Content Administration -> Webdynpro -> and expanded the JCO Destinations folder, there was a red icon with a note "No connection to SLD" and as soon as I click on the red icon - I get this spinning wheel and a message "no connection to SLD", all Jco destinations were also greyed out.
I redid the Visual Admin -> SLD Data Supplier manual transfer again, this time around it FAILED. Checked User Management and behold.. SLDDSUSER has been locked due to 6 failed attempts.
So, question is - where/what was trying to login using SLDDSUSER ?
It seems this login occured when I clicked on the red icon (which list all the Jco destinations). Where can I modify the passwords ?
The Jco destinations, have been greyed out and cannot be edited.
Points will be surely awarded, thank you all for your assistance.
