Hi amitm,

You can give bn_openerp user the right to create database (superuser), so you won't need to go through the cli to manage DB.

Please refer the following link to resolve the issue:

The traceback indicates that you are blocked in service/security.py check_super method.  This method checks OpenERP's master password.  So, when you creating a database, enter the correct Master Password (this is NOT the same as the admin password)
