When trying to promoting a SAP BI repository  full content using LCM CLI method suggested in the Tehcnical Admin Guide we have noticed that following error appear regardin SMAdmin user:

Setting for Property-value pair (SI_FORCE_PASSWORD_CHANGE, true) contradicts (SI_CHANGEPASSWORD, false). Resolve the contradiction. (FWM 08001)


We have also reproduced the same issue when trying to activate the user (KBA 1759750).

Any idea about how to workaround this issue?
