Hi

I just copied across some users from a oracle 8.1.7. database to a 10g database which has the password verification set up. It did not copy the oracle users across. So I tried creating the oracle user manually and now I get this ora-28003 error. I tried switching that password verification off but still I get the error. Anyone has any idea why this is happening?

How did you disable the password verify function?

I set the profile value to NULL.
"alter profile default limit password_verify_function null;"

Another strange thing is that, now after setting this to null, I can create new users. But I cannot update existing users.

You should set the password_verify_function to UNLIMITED instead of null.

I apologize, the value should indeed be NULL. How were you creating the new users? Were you trying to use the same passwords as in the old database?

Ok.
In oracle 8.1.7. we had set up to take the user name as the password. So I am trying to do the same here.

This is on a 9i database:

SQL> conn / as sysdba
Connected.
SQL> @?\rdbms\admin\utlpwdmg.sql

Function created.


Profile altered.

SQL> select profile, resource_name, limit from dba_profiles
  2  where resource_type = 'PASSWORD';

PROFILE    RESOURCE_NAME                    LIMIT
---------- -------------------------------- ------------------------------
DEFAULT    FAILED_LOGIN_ATTEMPTS            3
DEFAULT    PASSWORD_LIFE_TIME               60

DEFAULT    PASSWORD_LOCK_TIME               .0006
DEFAULT    PASSWORD_GRACE_TIME              10

7 rows selected.

SQL> create user test_user identified by test_user;
create user test_user identified by test_user

ORA-20001: Password same as or similar to user


SQL> alter profile default limit PASSWORD_VERIFY_FUNCTION null;

Profile altered.

SQL> create user test_user identified by test_user;

User created.

Is this similar to the process that you are following?

Not sure why you are experiencing the issue you are having. Below is the scenario you are describing (at least the way I'm understanding it) with a current database user.

SQL> select * from v$version;

NLSRTL Version 10.2.0.1.0 - Production

SQL> conn test_user/test_user
Connected.
SQL> -- As you can see TEST_USER already exists in the database.
SQL> conn / as sysdba
