    Say i have
    User : Abhay
    Pwd : Abhay
    I use this user in may applications to connect to Oracle.
    But say now SYS user changes the Pwd for this user & hence all the application using this User will fail to connect to Oracle Server.

    Yes i can change the PWD in all applications which use this user, but that would be teatious process.

    Now say i want to revert it back to OLD PWD, but i dont remebmer...
    By any chance will Oracle Server manitain logs of wat has been chaged...and can we by any chance get the Old pwd??????


    Or say i have created user abhay with pwd abhay....
    but say i forget...can i get this pwd in any way?????

    Abhay.

    Yes it is possible to get your password. It will be coded to the username. The problem is that the LOCATION of the password list is VERY sensitive and if I explain to you how to do it, then anybody will be able to retrieve all the passwords on their system....mmmm

    Ask your superior if you may use the sys or system privelege to start over and create again.

    good luck

    If you have a backup of the system before the password was changed then yes you can reset the password to it's old value. You will need to restore the system to a new location and retrieve the value of PASSWORD from the DBA_USERS view and copy it to your production database.

    I don't think there is any way you can reverse the changing of a password.

    Why don't you check the password from the application, it is hardcoded somewhere, and then alter that Oracle user once again?

    What if SYS User changed PSWD by Alter User command.....
    It dosent give me OLD PSWD....as u see above.....

    Julian :
    I can always find the hardcoded PSWD....if it was ASP,VB or so...
    But in the ETL tools like Informatica PSWD will be encripted then wat do i do & also if the app were Active X or Exe then??
    But wat actually i wanted to knoe was if say User i jus created with X pswd and i forget.....but want to know that pswd.....then how do i do.

    if SYS do alter user then you cannot do anything, this is is not a technical problem rather political

    I mean if you dont remember your old password what´s point revert it back to the old password?
