Applies to:Oracle Database - Enterprise Edition - Version 10.2.0.1 to 220.127.116.11 [Release 10.2 to 11.2]
Information in this document applies to any platform.
The expiry_date column in the dba_users view gets reset to the value in column CREATED if the password for an account is left unchanged after password has expired.
If the password is reset, the expiry_date is correctly calculated
The behavior can be reproduced as follows :
1. Create user and wait till the password expires. Check the expiry_date and created columns to verify that these columns reflect correct values.
2. Try to connect as this user. You will be prompted for a new password.
Do not change the password. Cancel and exit.
3. Check the dba_users view. The expiry date will be reset to created date.
