Oracle WebCenter Content - Version and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


When running a crawl from SES to the WebCenter Content server (formerly UCM, Universal Content Management), that crawl may fail. The SES log will show an error such as:

14:48:25:351 INFO main Crawling started at 3/22/12 2:48 PM
14:48:26:428 ERROR main java.sql.SQLException: ORA-28001: the password has expired

14:48:26:531 ERROR main EQG-30050: Could not connect to database: jdbc:oracle:thin:@(DESCRIPTION=(ADDRESS=(PROTOCOL=TCP)(HOST=mydb.us.mycompany.com)(PORT=1522))(CONNECT_DATA=(SERVER=DEDICATED)(SERVICE_NAME=ses1.mydb.us.mycompany.com)))
14:48:26:531 ERROR main ORA-28001: the password has expired

And if the passwords are not reset correctly the following error may occur:

16:30:08:812 ERROR main EQG-30046: Invalid user name or password for user EQ_TEST
16:30:11:928 ERROR main EQG-30046: Invalid user name or password for user EQ_TEST
