Last updated on SEPTEMBER 05, 2017
Applies to:Oracle HTTP Server - Version 126.96.36.199.0 to 188.8.131.52.0 [Release Oracle11g to 12c]
After using dadtool.pl script to encrypt dads.conf passwords, access to the applications is requesting to provide credentials even when storing in the dads.conf for automatic authentication.
Encrypt the password in dads.conf by executing command:
perl dadTool.pl -f <ORACLE_INSTANCE/config/OHS/ohs1/mod_plsql/dads.conf
-- When accessing the application, it should run without asking for credentials to be provided.
Encrypting password in dads.conf is the only change affecting this. Following the below documentation:
