Datapump will recreate the users for you. You can also create them manually and use the "identified by values "<hashed password>" syntax.

When doing schema level datapump imports you must also remember that datapump will only grant you privileges on the schema objects you are importing. So any privilege on sys objects (eg execute on dbms_alert) will not be granted during the import. (as sys is not exported during database level exports, the same example should be true for database level imports).

Greetings Oracle List!
We're moving an Oracle Database to a new Server upgrading from 10 to 11 with Datapump. Can we migrate the schema's without knowing/changing the passwords? We took a datapump extract from Oracle 10, extracted the create user DDL and tried to create the users in Oracle 11 with the password hash however that does not work.
