How to get password downward compatibility


Scenario: An SAP system has been upgraded from 4.6C to ECC6.0. But in ECC 6.0, the password can consist of 40 characters. For some reasons, this has to be restricted to 8 characters (same as old release).

Click on the documentation to get the possible values of the parameters:
 
Now click on "Change Value" 
 
Change the parameter value from 1 to 5 for backward compatibility:
