Applies to:

Oracle Internet Directory - Version 9.0.4 to 11.1.1 [Release 10gR1 to 11g]
Oracle Database - Enterprise Edition - Version and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


The Oracle Internet Directory (OID) component is not being used in the system.

There is an Oracle predefined / seeded account called DIP in each database (DB) that was accidentally dropped using the drop user command, which dropped the DIP userID (drop user DIP cascade;).

Is there any impact on the database?

And if wanting to recreate the account back (as Oracle suggests not to delete/drop any predefined account), what is the proper process to do so?
