How to Change User Passwords with MSYNC on Win32 clients (Doc ID 353096.1)

Last updated on FEBRUARY 01, 2022

Applies to:

Oracle Lite - Version and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.
NOTE: In the images and/or the document content below, the object names and the user information and data used represents fictitious data from the Oracle sample schema(s) or Public Documentation delivered with an Oracle database product or other training material. Any similarity to actual persons, living or dead, is purely coincidental and not intended in any manner.


The goal is to provide customers/users with a documented step to allow password changes to run smoothly.

Sometimes using the old password or even the wrong password will crash MSYNC and cause you to have to re-install the client.  The below method will prevent the uninstall and reinstall after the Crash.


EXAMPLE of what will happen if process below is not followed:

1. Use existing Sample for JUNIUS > Transport_Win32  (comes with the installed demos).
 (Users  should be able to use an existing application, but create a new user manually in Mobile Manager>Users)
2. Setup one client seperate machine using the USER JUNIUS  password JUNIUS
3. Run msync, successful sync.
4. Go to Mobile Manager,  click on Users
5. Put a new password  JOE for JUNIUS and Confirm Password  JOE click on APPLY.
6. Go to client machine again >  values should not have changed and Junius/Junius will be defaulted in MSYNC window.
7. Run msync.exe
8. Error is reproduced at this point.  (Expected behavior) 

ERROR",CNS-9026,"11/08/2005 14:59:01","Wrong username or password. Please enter correct value and sync again. "

Crashes will possibly occur next attempt of wrong password.
