Changing user password in Oracle Applications 10.7

 Unlike 11i 10.7 does not have any utility for changing passwords for application users. Follow the steps below to change the password of any application user on 10.7. Example is shown for sysadmin user.


1. Find the encrypted value that ICX_CALL.CRCHASH is returning for the SYSADMIN password

In SQL*Plus as APPS owner:

SQL> variable x number

SQL> execute :x :=icx_call.crchash('SYSADMIN', 'sysadmin');



PL/SQL procedure successfully completed



SQL> print x



2. Change SYSADMIN's encrypted password to the value returned for x.

SQL> update fnd_web_users
          set password = 'VALUE RETURNED FOR X'
          where username = 'SYSADMIN';


3. Login as SYSADMIN/sysadmin. This should now be successful.

NOTE: Take a backup of FND_WEB_USERS before changing the password.



If the above procedure does not work or if you do not find the scripts then you must be on a lower version of AOL, try the following (This should work).

1. Take a backup of table FND_USER.
2. Execute update,

update fnd_user set ENCRYPTED_FOUNDATION_PASSWORD ='9B7E9A1B0F4C1E5012D34265F7F3DFDD6779CF66449A9ED9EE6AC8BA978BC1C5',
ENCRYPTED_USER_PASSWORD='AB5A8B42AC7F4CB4537028E51FF45607EF1B69A699E085DF5D72D88AAB5E2DBA'
where user_name=’SYSADMIN’;
 
3. Login as USERNAME: SYSADMIN
                  PASSWORD: SYSADMIN

'Linux-x86_64 Error: 28: No space left on device' While trying to start the database -- Error

SQL> startup mount pfile='/tmp/initdlfasp12.ora'
ORA-27102: out of memory
Linux-x86_64 Error: 28: No space left on device


This as you can see is on Linux x86 with 64 bit processor. We got this error after we changed SGA on 10gR2 database. So was sure that this is something to do with the OS.

Parameters to check for this are shmall.

shmall is the total amount of shared memory, in pages, that the system can use at one time.

$cat /proc/sys/kernel/shmmax
53687091200

$ getconf PAGE_SIZE
4096

As per Oracle SHMALL should be set to the total amount of physical RAM divided by page size.

Our system has 64GB memory, so change kernel.shmall = 1024 * 1024 * 1024 * 64 / 4096 = 16777216


Once this value is calculated you can modify Linux system configuration file directly.

$ su - root
vi /etc/sysctl.conf file:
kernel.shmall=16777216

and

# sysctl -p

Once this is done the database was started without any problem.
