Friends,
This is NOT urgent, so answer it when your having nothing better to do! We have one schema whose password is not known. I can not reset it as it is stored somewhere in application. Is there any way to find out what that password was?

Thanks,
Nirav

No if password is stored in data dictionary.

Yes if password is stored in your application.



Or you can reset your schema password by this command


alter user my_forgot_schema identified by unforgetable_schema;

What do you mean by it?

If the password is in application then from application see it and then reset it in your database.
