We got BI system with portal running on windows 2003 server.

I am trying to patch up portal/jave stack with stack 15.

After JSPM successfully logged on with SDM and it shows target sp 15 for all components.

But after i click deployment jspm is giving the following error:


<!HELP[Manual modification of the header may cause parsing problem!]/>




<!FORMATTER[ %s: %m)]/>

If i click sdm gui tool i can logon with the master password successfully.

I don't understan why the same password not working with in JSPM.

Appreciate your help.

Hi Rama,

Try the following steps of SAP Note 701654. you have to change the property admin/password/<SID> as described below. You have to use the working password related to user id - admin/user/<SID>...

1. Start the Config Tool.

(Execute <SAPj2eeEngine_install_dir> \configtool\configtool.bat.)

2. Select the secure store node.

The configuration for the secure storage in the file system appears.

3. Select the admin/password/<SID> entry.

4. Enter the administrator user's new password in the "Value" field and choose "Add".

5. Choose "File" --> "Apply" to save the data.

Note: Contrary to the message that appears, you do not need to restart the server or cluster for this change to take effect.

6. Finally restart SDM server.

Consider Reward points, if helpful..
