Check your user passwords

A good tool to monitor your users password is the one developed by Red database security.

It’s called checkpwd.

Download it on there website
On the command line simply type:

C:\checkpwd [oradba_user]/[password]@[tns entry] [your_password _file _location.txt]
On oracle 8i it’s easy but now with Oracle 10g, to connect as sysdba we have to specify for example in SQLPLUS:

SQL>conn sys/[password] as sysdba

This is apparently not taken into account yet and it fails to recognize the command with the extra words “as sysdba”.

    To solve the as sysdba problem, connect with system instead of sys.
