    Manage Passwords across multiple databases

    Hi,

    We have the same users connecting multiple database. A lot of them have differennt passwords but the same username. Whats the best way to have a system where the passwords across all the 3 databases are synced up.

    Detail
    -------

    We have 3 databases


    A, B and C and the emplyees of our company have accounts in all of
    them. We plan to write a front end so that they can manage the passwrds
    themselves rather than letting the DBA do that.


    That is they will have a User Interface where they can modify the
    password and that will update the password in all the 3 instances. This
    will ensure that the passwords are always same cross different
    applications accessing different databases.


    Its easy to write a procedure which can do this to a database where the
    password management application resides. How does one go about updating
    the user passwords in the remore database using stored procedure.


    Thanks
    Ron

    Below is a lousy way to accomplish it. Idea being - find a way to replicate the hash value across.

    How do we accomplish this from a stored procedure.

    We are planning to provide a GUI environment to our users using plsql webtoolkit.

    Thanks
