Change APPS password in EBS R12.2.x Delta 6 or below

Important: These steps must be carried out on the run file system. The FND_USER and FND_ORACLE_USERID tables should be backed up before any passwords are changed. Remove the backups after you have confirmed that the changes are successfully completed. Passwords for all the 3 schemas, APPS, APPLSYS and APPS_NE will be changed together while changing APPLSYS password.

1. Shut down the application tier services using the below script:

$INST_TOP/admin/scripts/adstpall.sh

2. Change the APPLSYS password using

 
There are 2 ways to change the APPLSYS password:

 
A. FNDCPASS:
 
[applmgr@erpapp01 ~]$ FNDCPASS apps/apps 0 Y system/manager SYSTEM APPLSYS apps_pwd
Log filename : L7909719.log
 
Report filename : O7909719.out

[applmgr@erpapp01 ~]$ cat L7909719.log

B. AFPASSWD:
 
AFPASSWD is an enhanced version of FNDCPASS, and includes the following features:
 

  • AFPASSWD only prompts for passwords required for the current operation, allowing separation of duties between applications administrators and database administrators. This also improves interoperability with Oracle Database Vault. In contrast, the FNDCPASS utility currently requires specification of the APPS and the SYSTEM usernames and corresponding passwords, preventing separation of duties between applications administrators and database administrators.
  •  

  • When changing a password with AFPASSWD, the user is prompted to enter the new password twice to confirm.
  •  

  • In Oracle E-Business Suite Release 12.2.3 and higher, you can also use the AFPASSWD utility to migrate Oracle E-Business Suite user passwords to a password hashing scheme.
  • Syntax for using AFPASSWD:
    AFPASSWD [-c [@]] -s
     
    [applmgr@erpapp01 ~]$ AFPASSWD -c apps@ERPUPG -s APPLSYS
    Enter the ORACLE password of Application Object Library 'APPSUSER':
    Connected successfully to APPS.
    Enter the password for your 'SYSTEM' ORACLE schema:
    Connected successfully to SYSTEM.
    Log file: AFPWD_ERPUPG_943215.log
    Enter new password for user:
    Verify new password for user:
    AFPASSWD completed successfully.
     
    NOTE: The steps 3 to 7 are mandatory for both FNDCPASS and AFPASSWD and are only applicable when changing the APPLSYS password. They are not applicable when changing passwords for product schemas like PO, GL etc or the SYSTEM schema.

    3. Run autoconfig on the application tier with the newly changed APPS password.


    4. Start AdminServer. Do not start any other application tier services.
