When applications user changes their password in Oracle Applications E-Business Suite (E-BIS), subsequent log in to Discoverer Plus, Viewer, Desktop or Administrator fails with "Failed to connect to database - Unable to connect to Oracle Applications database: Invalid username/password".  This occurs even though the user has entered a valid username and password and only happens after the password was changed in E-Business Suite.


ATG Rollup 3 Patch was installed into EBS  This patch automatically adds the "SIGNON_PASSWORD_CASE" profile option and sets it to "Case-Sensitive".  Following installation of this patch, users who have changed their password, may experience invalid username/password errors logging in to Discoverer.
