    changing the password for the user responsible for intelligent agent

    Hi

    Database - Oracle 9i rel 2
    O/s - Sun Solaris ver 8/9

    After creating a database, installing and configuring a management server, a user is created called DBSNMP which is used by intelligent agent . Now for security reason we should alter the password. For this we have to put the password in snmp_ro or snmp_rw.ora file, otherwise there will be a problem. Now I want to know which file needs to be changed and how ? whar should be the entry ? Can u give me a example ?

    Regards

    Deba

    Curtesy of Metalink:

    Code:
    1.  Stop the Intelligent Agent:
          On NT:        START->SETTINGS->CONTROL PANEL->SERVICES->ORACLEAGENT    STOP      
    
    or from DOS
            NET STOP ORACLEAGENTXX
    
    On UNIX:        %  lsnrctl dbsnmp_stop        
    
    2.  Edit the "$ORACLE_HOME/net../admin/snmp_rw.ora" file.  Add the following     parameter:       
    
    SNMP.CONNECT.service_name.NAME=username      
    SNMP.CONNECT.service_name.PASSWORD=password      
    
    The variable  is the exact listing of the databasename found      
    in the visibleservices list in the snmp_ro.ora file.        
    
    If username is the default (DBSNMP), there is no need to specify the user
    here. Only the password is required.        
    
    
    3.  Change the DBSNMP password on the database. You can use either 
        Security Manager, Sqlplus, or Server Manager.
        
        If you use SQLPlus or Server Manager, you can issue the following command: 
    
            alter user "dbsnmp" identified by "newpassword";  4.  
    
    Restart the Intelligent Agent.

    In 9i to stop and strat the intelligent agent use:

    agentctl stop
    agentctl start
