    Could the default maximum password length be changed ???

    Hi,

    A very basic question...I understand that the default maximum password length in Oracle 8i is 30 characters.

    Is it possible to change this database default ?? I would like it to be 128 characters. Is this possible ?

    Thanks alot.

    There is no default password length, there only is a maximum length which is 30 characters.

    Think a little...
    ...where are passwords stored?
    a) in a system table
    b) in a cookie jar
    c) in hyperspace
    d) all of the above
    e) none of the above

    ...would you alter an object sitting in a system table?
    a) true
    b) false
    c) what's a system table?
