Symptoms

Product: BRM 7.4 PS15

When the database is down and one tries to start dm_oracle, the dm_oracle.pinlog file will print out the username/password@SID in clear text. This is a security concern.  Other passwords that are encrypted in the pin.conf (or in a service object) are not shown (they are masked with XXXX).
