Preparing SAP HANA

Safeguard for Privileged Passwords makes an SSL connection to SAP HANA using a TCP port between 30015 and 39915, depending on the SAP system number (also known as the "instance number"). For more information, see Safeguard ports.

To configure SAP HANA for Safeguard for Privileged Passwords

  1. Create a service account and assign it a password.

    This service account must have permissions for remote connections and permissions to change passwords. Consult your SAP security guide for the appropriate settings for your organization.

  2. Verify that you can log in with the service account.

    In SAP, when you create a new account of Dialog User or Communication Data type, you will be prompted to set a new password.

  3. In Safeguard for Privileged Passwords, create the asset and accounts for the SAP asset type using password authentication. You must specify the SAP Client ID number as well as the Port used by the SAP instance.

    When you create an account of Dialog User or Communication Data type, Safeguard for Privileged Passwords allows you to set the account password or reset the password. Use the Reset Password option to reset the password for this account. If you use the Set Password option and enter the same password used in SAP, the password check in Safeguard for Privileged Passwords will fail.

Preparing SAP Netweaver Application Servers

Safeguard for Privileged Passwords makes an SSL connection to the SAP Application Server using a TCP port between 3300 and 3399, depending on the SAP system number (also known as the instance number). You can have multiple instances of SAP running on a server, each using a different network port in the range of 3300-3399. The last two digits of the port are called the system number (or instance number). For more information, see Safeguard ports.

When you assign a password to the account, the account is not usable until you log in and change the password from the admin-assigned value.

If a privileged user for the asset is of System or Communication User Type, assign RFC authorization for the RFCPING function module for that user. This allows the user to execute its functions remotely, such as changing the password.
