Activating the Emergency User in SAP Java only system
Why SAP* user activation required

Sometime we end up in a situation when none of the user are able to log in into SAP or even Administrator user is locked or not working. In this scenario you have to activate the emergency user SAP* .

Please note : This method is only for Java Only system , for dual stack systems you can activate  SAP* or lock unlock user via SU01. (Will provide a link shortly to unlock SAP* in ABAP stack).

Once SAP* is activated all other users will be deactivated until SAP* is disabled again.
