that should work as a full import does a alter user username identified by values, and I have taken the hex value passed thru a password cracker and found a password that with the exact same hex value on a different db and it worked.

all this is 10g and below, 11g is a different animal with case sensitive password and the such.

passwords in different instances
Sent by:


If I have two users existing in two separate databases ( and these
users have the same value in the password column of the dba_users view, does this mean that they have the same passwords?

In other words. if I enter the following command:

alter user USER1 identified by values 'XXXXXXX'

where XXXXXX = select password from dba_users where username = 'USER2'

will the USER1 and USER2 have the same passwords?

thank you
