Hi Friends,

i have an oracle 9 database (solaris eight) which i exported to an oracle 10g database (solaris 10). I used the imp and exp utilities .

The problem is that in oracle 9 i can decrypt the password but when i decrypt the password in oracle 10g i get garbage characters.

Due to this problem, I cant login in my application.

Is there a way to use the decrypted password from oracle 9 and encrypt it again in oracle 10g.


Thank you,
Dirish

If you call about Oracle passwords, this is wrong you can't decrypt them (above all because they are not crypted but hashed).

Hi all,

I have a Sun server with oracle 9i installed and an application server on SUN server. Both SUN servers have solaris 9 installed.

i have import the database from oracle 9i to oracle 10g on solaris 10 using the imp utility.

Now i am logging on my application server and i am getting a password problem.
Logon denied.

After testing our configuration we have decrypted the password on oracle 9i and oracle 10g on sqlplus, both passwords were not similar.

So, is there any way where i can decrypt the password on oracle 10g.

Hi Michel,

Thanks for the previous solution you provided (imp and export/ create tablespace, etc). It worked.

In fact I did a test on oracle 9, e.g for user dirish, I can read the password which is pass123 but for the same user, on oracle 10g, when i decrypt the password, i have garbage characters.

In fact as i told you earlier, i did a full export from oracle9 and did a full import in oracle10g.


Thank you,
Dirish

Once again you can't decrypt Oracle password.
Post exactly what you did (copy and paste your screen).
