HANA HXE Login failed


Hello Experts,

I am new to HANA, I'll try to explain my issue in detail.

While installing HANA Express, there were only 2 users that for which I had to change the password for only 2 users, first was HXEADM and other was XSA_ADMIN. I can login into both in the VMWARE SUSE linux TERMINAL screen. 

My intention in to access User Management in HXE@HXE. In the below screen shot you'll notice that there are no credentials assigned to it in the Database Directory.

When try to login I get the popup as in the below screen shot, asking for USER and PASSWORD. I tried both USER's first the XSA_ADMIN and also HXEADM but neither of the credentials are accepted.

Where is it that I am going wrong?

I haven't used HANA Express for a while, but if I am not mistaken for the user management, you should use the user SYSTEM with the same master password you set during the installation for users like XSA_ADMIN and XSA_DEV.

HXEADM is not a database user, but an OS user to use in the host's shell.
