To e.g. reconfigure SMT from scratch, the install routine for an SMT server is supposed to be run a second time and create a new database. Prior starting yast2 smt-server, the old smt database was deleted. While YaST2 writes all information, the creation of the SMT user and database is skipped, noting YaST2 did not ask for the mysql root password to setup the database.


Delete /var/lib/YaST2/smt-already-adjusted.


If /var/lib/YaST2/smt-already-adjusted exists, YaST2 will skip creating the user and database.
