Ora-01017 When Connecting With Globally Identified Users That Have Special Characters In The Passwords

(Doc ID 1380933.1)

Last updated on OCTOBER 25, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle Server - Enterprise Edition - Version: and later   [Release: 10.2 and later ]
Information in this document applies to any platform.


When the database uses a single byte character set (example: WE8ISO8859P1) the global users who have a non ASCII character in the password cannot connect to the database. The connection fails with ORA-1017. When the character set of the database is unicode ( UTF8, AL32UTF8) having a non ASCII character in the passwords of the global users does not cause any problem.
