How To Change the Password of the Database User Sysman (Enterprise Manager Database Control Repository Schema) (Doc ID 259379.1)

Last updated on APRIL 03, 2018

Applies to:

Enterprise Manager for Oracle Database - Version 10.1.0.2 to 11.2.0.3 [Release 10.1 to 11.2]
Enterprise Manager for Oracle Database - Version 11.2.0.4 to 11.2.0.4 [Release 11.2]
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Purpose

The SYSMAN password is stored encrypted in several places so that the Enterprise Manager Database Control web site can access the database without having to prompt the user for the SYSMAN password at each operation.

When the SYSMAN password is changed in the database, the new password must be provided to the Database Control web site configuration.

If this is not done, the web site cannot access the database, and the following error messages will be logged in the trace files:

2012-05-31 13:50:13,513 [PAFStartupThread] ERROR conn.ConnectionService verifyRepositoryEx.891 - Invalid Connection Pool. ERROR = ORA-01017: invalid username/password; logon denied

This document explains How to change the password of the Database User SYSMAN without breaking the communication between the Database and the Database Control.
