EM 13c: Can OEM Accepts DBSNMP/SYS Encrypted Password From SYS.USER$ Table Through EMCLI Command? (Doc ID 2736955.1)

Last updated on DECEMBER 29, 2020

Applies to:

Enterprise Manager Base Platform - Version and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


The passwords of database user accounts such as DBSNMP, SYS etc are saved in SYS.USER$ table in encrypted form.
Is it possible to extract this encrypted password from sys.user$ table and pass it in below emcli command, using some scripting, to update the passwords in OEM? Does OEM supports this?

./emcli update_db_password -target_type="oracle_database" -target_name=<Target Name> -user_name="dbsnmp" -change_at_target=yes
-old_password="<Old Password>" -new_password="<New Password>" -retype_new_password="<New Password>"
