(Doc ID 1987705.1)

Last updated on MARCH 08, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle Internet Directory - Version 9.0.4 to 11.1.1 [Release 10gR1 to 11g]
Oracle Database - Enterprise Edition - Version 11.1.0.6 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

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?
