Is the REMOTE_LOGIN_PASSWORD parameter valid in Init.ora !?
I read a book saying that you need to assign the password file
to the INIT.ORA variable REMOTE_LOGIN_PASSWORD.
Please advice me. Thanks
Yes it is necessary.
If you are using Database Authentication then REMOTE_LOGIN_PASSWORDFILE = EXCLUSIVE
It is also necessary when you want to give SYSDBA priviledge to other users.
The problem is that when I use the ORAPWD to create my password file for the SYS and INTERNAL,
how can I use the password file for my database authentication !?
let's say, I type the follow command :
orapwd80 file=c:\ownpass.dat password=abc123
After this, the ownpass.dat file will be created,
when I add the line "REMOTE_LOGIN_PASSWORD=c:\ownpass.dat" in the init.ora, when I restart the server, it said
"INVALID REMOTE_LOGIN_PASSWORD parameter".
Pls advice me.
the values for REMOTE_LOGIN_PASSWORD are
NONE, SHARED, EXCLUSIVE
since you are not using any of these, instead you are using the file name that is why Oracle is complaining about this parameter.
To use parameter file you should set
any of these 2 would work
looks like u are a bit confused here, the orapwd utility as already explained by pando takes three values one none- the password file is not required this would be the case when u are connecting to the database externally, like what we do here, the next one is 'shared' which is available on oracle parallel server, but this constrains users to use only 'sys' or 'internal' to connect to the database with sysdba previleges, the last one is 'exclusive' this value allows for users who are granted the priveleges of 'sysdba' or 'sysoper' by the internal or sys user, (u could verify this in the view 'v$pwfile_users'), then those users could connect to the database with 'sysdba' or 'sysoper' priveleges and they would be connecting to the sys schema, be very very cautious when using this feature, if compromised it could well be uer waterloo!!!
error while seleting from v$pwfile_users
I can't understand this.
If anybody can suggest
SQL> select * from v$pwfile_users;
ORA-00600: internal error code, arguments: [KSSRMP1], , , , , , , 
I believe that it's a bug. What version are you running?
A workaround is using:
select * from v$pwfile_users order by 1;
Don't ask me why that works.
