(Doc ID 1574928.1)

Oracle HTTP Server - Version to [Release Oracle11g to 12c]
All Platforms


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.

To reproduce:

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:
