Welcome to the forum, Pravin. Is the problem that you need to re-set the users' passwords? Or something else?

You have not to know account passwords to get their data: a DBA (or anyone with SELECT ANY TABLE privilege) can read these data and a DBA (or anyone with EXP_FULL_DATABASE role) can export these tables and data.

You have not to know account passwords to reset them: a DbA (or anyone with ALTER USER privilege) can reset them.

Michel

I don't know what you mean by "recover", but you probably want to re-set the passwords. For example,
alter user sysman identified by Pa55w0rd;
connect sysman/Pa55w0rd

OK?

Thank you michel for your reply,

Just connect as SYSTEM and change the password of your expired account using ALTER USER.

Michel

Thank you very much John for your fast reply.

I am new for oracle database,

How?

Let me try:

  • there are certain users in your database whose passwords have expired
  • you have no idea what these passwords were, so you can't connect
  • lucky you, there IS a way to set these passwords - you need to connect as a privileged user and run ALTER USER statement - the one John provided some time ago.
  • once you do that for all users you are interested in, you'll be able to connect to them, as if nothing happened (sort of; database links might not work, for example, but I don't think that it bothers you at the moment)

For example: there's user PBARDALE in my database:
SQL> select username, account_status from dba_users where username = 'PBARDALE';

USERNAME                       ACCOUNT_STATUS
------------------------------ --------------------------------
PBARDALE                       EXPIRED

Now I'll change its password:
SQL> alter user pbardale identified by november11;

User altered.

Finally, connect as PBARDALE:
SQL> connect pbardale/november11@ora10
Connected.

I hope you got the idea; if not, say so.


Now I saw your last message; you ALTER USER one by one. You can set the same password for all of them. The easiest way would be to write SQL which would write SQL for you:
SQL> set pagesize 0
SQL> spool change_pwd.sql
SQL> select 'alter user ' || username || ' identified by november11;'
  2  from dba_users where account_status = 'EXPIRED';

<you'd get list of statements here>

SQL> spool off;
SQL> @change_pwd

Right.

No but it is easy to create a script to do it.

select 'alter user '||username||' identified by michel;'
from dba_users
where account_status = 'EXPIRED';


And copy and paste the result in SQL*Plus window to execute it.

Michel

thank you very much..

I tried your suggestion of script for alter user,

but it is working only for DBSNMP and SYSMAN, not for others.


thank you..

What does that mean? Any error? If so, which one?

If possible, post your SQL*Plus session.

So only these two are "expired". Please, post the result of
select username, account_status from dba_users where account_status <> 'OPEN';

These are "EXPIRED & LOCKED", not just "EXPIRED" (most of them). That's why the WHERE clause you used ("WHERE account_status = 'EXPIRED'") didn't catch them. Obviously, you'd replace 'EXPIRED' with 'EXPIRED & LOCKED'.

However: are you sure you want to do that for all these users? I'm pretty much sure that, as long as you might want to unlock and use SCOTT or HR schema, you don't want to do that with APEX_030200 or SPATIAL_CSW_ADMIN_USER and similar.

Therefore, choose wisely and be careful. You might regret your actions, some day.

Password file is irrelevant to the question.
Password file is for SYSDBA or SYSOPER accounts not for normal ones.
Password file does not contain any information regarding the expiration of passwords.
