[ST OMU] OMU/OML Database password for Oracle cannot contain special characters

PROBLEM:

Operations Manager for Unix/Linux (OMU/OML) gets installed correctly but most processes do not start if db user use special characters in its password.

In some other cases AdminUI installer is not able to connect to the db if db user use special characters in its password.

HOW-TO-REPRODUCE:
- set new password for opc_op db user to: o!%^*()_+~-=]}[{\|;:',><./`$
# opcdbpwd -set

- try to connect to the db:
# su - oracle
# sqlplus "opc_op/\"o!%^*()_+~-=]}[{\|;:',><./\`\$\"@ov_net"

- start with AdminUI installation, follow the instructions
- on the part when it asks for opc_op password enter your password, e.g. o!%^*()_+~-=]}[{\|;:',><./`$
- installer of AdminUI cannot connect to the db


ENVIRONMENT: (Hardware, OS, OS Version, Browser, etc)
Linux, Solaris, HPUX

 


CAUSE:
Root cause unknown

SOLUTION:  

Do not use special characters in the OMU/OML database password for Oracle.
