Sysman account locked

23 Jul

When you get error ora-28000 when using database console or Enterprise Manager => the sysman account is locked [locked(timed)]. Do the following to reset the password (remember to make a copy of the file before editing):


  1. stop database console (through service)
  2. change password for user sysman
  3. E:\Oracle\product\11.1.0\db_1\dbora2.npta.no_SID\sysman\emd
    • <Property NAME=”UserName” VALUE=”SYSMAN” ENCRYPTED=”FALSE”/>
      <Property NAME=”password” VALUE=”<new_password>” ENCRYPTED=”FALSE”/>
  4. E:\Oracle\product\11.1.0\db_1\dbora2.npta.no_SID\sysman\config
    • oracle.sysman.eml.mntr.emdRepPwd= <new_password> 
    • oracle.sysman.eml.mntr.emdRepPwdEncrypted= FALSE 
  5. startup up db console (service)
  6. login using the new password
