After migrating the Oracle Financial Services Applications (OFSA) 4.5 database to a new server and upgrading to a new version of the Oracle Database (ex. 10g, 11g), non-dba users cannot log into any OFSA modules (ex. Performance Analyzer (PA), Balance and Control (BC), etc.) with their preferred Ids.  Users receive the following error after entering their username and password:
