Try to use a stronger (or weaker) password which is not in USR40.

If no passwords are accepted, then someone may have tried (too much) to range or put a * into USR40. Logon using a connection from SM59 and your own account, go to USR40 and remove the offending entrie(s).

If the effected system has a kernel 7.00 (pl < 56) then <a href="http://service.sap.com/~form/handler?_APP=01100107900000000342&_EVENT=REDIR&_NNUM=943505">SAP Note 943505</a> will resolve the problem. Previously even an empty USR02 entry was causing the described problem (since it was treated as "*" entry).

USR40 is recommended to be maintained with <b>patterns</b> like pass, abc and not individual values. So

try to change to not a familiar one.

Well, table USR40 can contain both, patterns and static values (literals), see <a href="http://service.sap.com/form/handler?_APP=01100107900000000342&_EVENT=REDIR&_NNUM=2467">SAP Note 2467</a> referencing <a href="http://service.sap.com/form/handler?_APP=01100107900000000342&_EVENT=REDIR&_NNUM=618630">SAP Note 618630</a>

Well, I just do not see how <a href="http://service.sap.com/~form/handler?_APP=01100107900000000342&_EVENT=REDIR&_NNUM=735356">SAP Note 735356</a> is related ...

Perhaps Chrisna wants to put the special characters into USR40 so that they cannot be included in the password?

SU01 could still include them in the password anyway.

Please have a look on my previous reply: there used to be a bug in the kernel 7.00 which has been fixed.

Yes, the administrator can assign a password which violates the USR40 rule. He will receive a warning which he can ignore (in contrast to the user which will receive an error which he cannot bypass).
