Oracle DB password keeps changing locking out the NNMi connection

3 tries, and the Oracle connection account gets locked out. The connection account is set to never expire, but something is changing the password, and then the account locks out.

 

What can be doing this? Anypone ever heard of it?

Re: Oracle DB password keeps changing locking out the NNMi connection

This is the story from the DB support side.......

"Let’s be clear about the source of the problem: The fact that it happened 2 times since Monday and the fact that:

  • The password did not expire in the Database. This was confirmed by the 2 oracle DBAs I talked to. The password is set and was to ‘unlimited’ always, i.e. with no expiration.
  • The db user password did not change in the database and it’s the same since the installation.

What is happening is when your application/process or user tries to connect (NNMi) with a different or wrong password, then the user will be locked after several wrong trials based on the configuration you have in your application. You need to doublecheck that this doesn’t happen and that your application is configured with the right password."

My support guys are telling me that the NNMi application is configured the same way as the other instances we have of NNMi. So it is stalemate..
