List of Changes Required to NCC after Changing the Default SMF Oracle Database Password (Doc ID 2063644.1)

Last updated on DECEMBER 04, 2019

Applies to:

Oracle Communications Network Charging and Control - Version 4.3.0 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


In Oracle Communications Network Charging and Control (NCC), the majority of the NCC applications which need to interact with the underlying Oracle Database (DB) will do so using the Operating System (OS) authenticated DB user.

However some processes need an elevated level of access to the DB and will then use the SMF Oracle DB user/login.  When using the SMF DB user, it is mandatory to explicitely provide a password before access is granted.

Due to the potential implications of leaving this password as the default, some operators may want to change this password.

This article will cover the different NCC configuration files which need to be updated once the SMF password has been updated.


This article is intended for customers, Oracle Consulting, and Solution Integrators who need to update the SMF password for NCC.

No specific skills are required beyond basic Unix skills.
