SOACS domain fails to start : ORA-28001: password has expired or ORA-01017: invalid username/password (Doc ID 2176870.1)

Last updated on AUGUST 29, 2016

Applies to:

SOA Suite Cloud Service - Version N/A to N/A
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

SOACS provisioning process internally creates SOA INFRA and MDS repository schema users. Passwords for these schema users are also created automatically by provisioning code.
Username and password selected doesn’t depend on input parameters entered in provisioning wizard, which means provisioning code is randomly generating username/password.
Usernames are something like: Sp983638488_SOAINFRA, Sp983638488_MDS, Sp983638488_UMS, therefore the domain administrator has no knowledge about SOA,MDS,OPSS schema users or their passwords.
In case of ON PREM SOA installations, RCU is used for creating SOA specific schemas which give administrators an option to select the username/password of their choice.
Another problem is that passwords of Database users expire after some time.
