I found there is clear password in the xml file in the process of Oracle instance creating.

The process like below

1, when using the following process to create the instance

Login as user Oracle
/home/Oracle11home/bin/dbca -createDatabase -silent  -templateName /home/Oracle11home/assistants/dbca/templates/Small.dbt -gdbName testDB -sid testSID -sysPassword [b]testpwd[/b] -systemPassword [b]testpwd[/b]


2. Found the file in $ORACLE_HOME/checkpoints/dbca/OraDb11g_home2_oracle_creation_checkpoint.xml , it listed the sys and system passwd (like testpwd for sys and system password) directly.

   <CHECKPOINT LEVEL="MAJOR" NAME="db_oracle" DESC="db creation checkpoint" STATE="FAIL">
      <PROPERTY_LIST>
         <PROPERTY NAME="command" TYPE="STRING" VAL=" -silent -createDatabase -templateName Small.dbt -gdbName testDB -sid testpwd -sysPassword testpwd -systemPassword testpwd"/>
      </PROPERTY_LIST>
   </CHECKPOINT>



I hope to confirm :

1. what is the purpose for oracle to genate the checkpoint.

2, can we remove the file safely ?

3, if there is configuration that we can avoid to show clear password in checkpoint file?


Thanks
