Changing the Password for the SAP Mobile Platform Windows Service

Change the password for the smpServiceUser user account that runs the SAP Mobile Platform Server Windows service. Your security policies define the frequency at which the service runs.

Context

The first time you install SAP Mobile Platform Server on a computer, the installer creates the smpServiceUser Windows user account; if the account already exists, the installer asks for the password. The installer then configures the SAP Mobile Platform Server Windows service to run under the smpServiceUser account, using the password supplied during installation.

Procedure

  1. Change the password for the smpServiceUser Windows user account.
    1. From the Windows Control Panel, open the User Accounts dialog.
    2. On the Users tab, select smpServiceUser, and click Reset Password.
    3. In the Reset Password dialog, enter the new password in both the New... and Confirm... fields, and click OK.
    4. Click OK on the User Accounts dialog.
  2. Make the same password change for the SAP Mobile Platform Server Windows service.
    1. From the Windows Control Panel, open the Services dialog.
    2. Right-click the SAP Mobile Platform Server service, and select Properties.
    3. In the SAP Mobile Platform Server Properties dialog, enter the new password in both the Password and Confirm Password fields, and click OK.
    4. Close the Services dialog.
  3. Restart SAP Mobile Platform Server.
