    1 hi there yes the users name and passwords are stored in usr02 table in database

    2 you can only view password of default users like sap* and ddic by running report rsusr003 using se38 trans

    abstracted from sapnote 2467
    3. How is the password stored?
    The password is stored in the database as a hash value (a reversal is not possible: the relevant plaintext password cannot be determined from the hash value). MD5 and (as of NetWeaver 7.0) SHA-1 with a deterministic "Salt" are used as the hash functions. As of NetWeaver 7.1, password hash procedures with a randomly generated "Salt" are also supported (see Note 991968).

    Hi Anil,

    Sap password hashes are stored in usr02 table. they are called bcode and passcode. RSUSR003 is very restricted. you can use for recovering the passwords. i think it also works for netweaver 7.1.

    also have a look at password profile parameters (login parameters)

    are you trying to reset the default passwords only?
