Changing Oracle passwords for client/server users

Hi there,

We have a HP9000 (HP-UX 11.0) with Oracle8 RDBMS software. The users are connecting to the HP9000 server from the client by SQL*Net to the application (Oracle listener). The users want to change their own Oracle application passwords. I know that you can set up profiles in Oracle, but that's more for setting up password aging.

Is there software available to let these users change their own passwords at any time?

Users can change their own passwds without the need of additional SW. If there are passwd restrivtions in place, this may not be possible.

Yes - users can modify their personal password without the DBA intervention (except is rules are set against that).

Re: Changing Oracle passwords for client/server users

The users have to have the 'alter user' privilege.
Once this is granted to all users, they may run
alter user identified by "password";
Hope this is close to what you were looking for.
