Re: ORAPWD

Shalom,

Review the procedures for properly generating this password.

I think you need to logon as sysdba to do what you are trying to do.

Any reason why this is posted in HP-UX? The windows guys might actually be familiar enough to help more than us.

Re: ORAPWD

Hy

check this site:
http://www.adp-gmbh.ch/ora/err/ora_01031.html

check the folder (c:\oracle\ora92\database\) to see whether the file was created. is it the right directory?
