When attempting to reset config schema password and running startofsaai in foreground, the following issue occurred.


Configuring log from: /app/ofsaai/ofsaa8/ficapp/common/FICServer/conf/

SMSService.log shows:
[DEBUG] [APP] [SMS] [NA] [INFORMATIONDOMAINSERVICES] [AESCryptor] File exists at /app/ofsaai/ofsaa8/conf/AESCryptKey.ext

[ERROR] [APP]  [SMS]  [NA] [DACCONNECTIONPROVIDER] Error getting connection : java.sql.SQLException: ORA-01017: invalid username/password; logon denied

Steps To Replicate:
1. Log into the database and change the config schema password.

    ALTER USER <ConfigSchema> IDENTIFIED BY <NewConfigPassword>;
2. Log into the OFSAA server.
3. Stop all OFSAA services.
4. Delete Reveleus.sec from FIC_HOME/conf.
   cd $FIC_HOME/conf
   rm Reveleus.SEC

5. Restart OFSAA service in foreground.
   cd $FIC_APP_HOME/common/FICServer/bin

6. Enter the latest config schema password when prompted at the console.

7. Found the following:
   - SMSService.log shows what looks like FICserver is running but has invalid username/password error.   
   - The foreground hangs.
   - Reveleus.SEC is created with new encrypted password but missing a CR/LF at the end.
   - DB_MASTER and AAI_DB_AUTH_ALIAS are not updated with new encrypted CONFIG password
