Team,

An Oracle user account got locked, how do I check, which program or session was the cause for it? Please let me know as how to fetch this details along with details like timestamp, ip address, program name....

Wanted to know for Oracle 11 version running on Solaris machine.

Thanks
Sunil Kumar

Account can be locked because of too many unsuccessful login attempts. Or, someone who is powerful enough, locked it manually. There may be some other reasons, but I don't know them (I'm sure that people who know it better will let you know).

How to get the details you mentioned? No idea either, sorry.

If people are connecting remotely, you can get these information in listener.log.

If this is important for you, I advice you to activate audit for this case:
AUDIT SESSION WHENEVER NOT SUCCESSFUL;
