Hello all,

I have an user who is getting ORA - 28000 Error, while connecting to an instance, she has connected to this instance successfully several times earlier. Myself and several other users are able to connect to the same instance.
How to resolve this issue and help the user to get connected to that instance successfully, please advise me.

Thanks a lot for cooperation in advance.

Regards,
Suranjita

Please learn how to lookup error codes.

28000, 00000, "the account is locked"
// *Cause: The user has entered wrong password consequently for maximum
// number of times specified by the user's profile parameter
// FAILED_LOGIN_ATTEMPTS, or the DBA has locked the account
// *Action: Wait for PASSWORD_LOCK_TIME or contact DBA

No that was not the reason, I know what ORA-28000 means....I just discovered the cause of the error, it is not as straight forward as just the user failed to put correct password for those number of times as specified in falied_login_attempts. This is because her tnsnames.ora got corrupted....I corrected the entry in tnsnames.ora file and she is fine with her connection.
