Oracle 11g EM & Password Expiry

with one comment

I’ve faced this issue twice now – passwords expired after a certain time by default in Oracle 11g. But this also messes up EM (dbconsole) by locking up SYSMAN (status shown as LOCKED(TIMED)). The following link has the details on how to deal with change of password of SYSMAN and DBSNMP in Enterprise Manager: https://forums.oracle.com/forums/thread.jspa?threadID=1011436

In short:

  1. Reset password and unlock SYSMAN
    1. sqlplus /nolog
    2. conn / as sysdba
    3. alter user sysman identified by <pass>
    4. alter user sysman account unlock
  2. Make EM pick up the change
    1. emctl stop dbconsole
    2. emctl setpasswd dbconsole
    3. emctl secure dbconsole
    4. emctl start dbconsole
  3. Fireup EM and log on using SYS as SYSDBA
    1. EM will ask to change all expired/soon-to-be-expired passwords
  4. For DBSNMP please see the given link above
