  3. Next Bob accepts the software license agreement.
  4. Bob then creates a master password for his SAP HANA One Management Console before clicking on the Setup HANA One! button.
  5. Then, in the administration tab Bob creates a hdbadm password for the Linux user and a master SYSTEM password for the database user.
  6. Bob then clicks on configure SAP HANA to access the front end of the SAP HANA One Management Console.
