Changing the Password of User TMSADM

You can change the password of user TMSADM and distribute it to the SAP systems of your domains.

 

 

Prerequisites

You have administrator authorization in client 000 for all SAP systems involved.

The SAP systems of the domains involved are available and are on status SAP release 4.6C or higher.

Note: The program copies the password using many network connections. Complete the prerequisites for using Secure Network Configuration (SNC) in all SAP systems of your own domain and connected domains. Then activate SNC in the global domain configuration of your own and all connected domains and distribute the changes.

 

Procedure

To change the password of user TMSADM, proceed as follows:

  1. Log on to the Domain Controller in client 000.
  2. To do this, execute the TMS_UPDATE_PWD_OF_TMSADM program with the ABAP Editor (transaction SE38).
  3. Enter a password.

    The selected password must correspond to all of the compatibility rules of all the systems involved. For more information, see SAP Notes 1414256, 1023437, and 862989.

  4. Start the program.

    The program runs through the following phases:

    1. Logon to each SAP system involved. The test users and test destinations are created.
    2. Check the connections created.
    3. Change the password of all TMSADM users in the own domain and in all TMSADM destinations involved (cross-domain, if necessary).
    4. Delete the test users and test destinations.

    At the end of this program run the system displays a log and the individual program steps. You can redisplay this log at any time.

 

Result

 

The password of the TMSADM user is changed in the own domain. The related entries in the RFC destinations of the own and connected domains were adapted. The content of the secure storage was updated for the password.

 

Note: The program can terminate with three failed logon attempts or other serious problems.

For SAP systems with a status lower than SAP NetWeaver 7.30 the program generates the destinations for the user TMSADM as described in SAP Note 761637. For SAP systems as of level SAP NetWeaver 7.30 the system stores the password of the user TMSADM in the secure storage for the TMS application and does not use the procedure described in SAP Note 761637.
