Question About The "SYSBACKUP" Database-internal Account and Its Password Change
Last updated on JUNE 21, 2018
Applies to:Oracle Database - Enterprise Edition - Version 188.8.131.52 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.
Users would like to know impact (if any) by changing the password for database internal account SYSBACKUP.
So, before we proceed with changing those specific passwords:
......is there anything else (besides just changing the password inside a given database) that we must do in conjunction with changing the password inside a given database?
(for example: is that database-internal account's password embedded anywhere else - i.e. outside of the database? And, do we need to stop/restart anything as a result of changing that password?)
Note1: we do NOT know the account's current password value (and nor do we believe we NEED to know it)
Note2: bear in mind that this is, in every case, a question about changing the password AFTER INSTALLATION TIME
