Changing OPSS Password

3 step process to update OPSS password for any FUSION MIDDLEWARE PRODUCT


STEP 1

 Change the PREFIX_OPSS user password in Oracle database first, using the following (recommend to change for all the relevant schemas to stay in sync)

ALTER USER  PREFIX_OPSS  IDENTIFIED BY new_password;

STEP 2

take backup of opss-jdbc.xml & jps-config-jse.xml file.

domain/config/jdbc/opss-jdbc.xml 
domain/config/fmwconfig/jps-config-jse.xml

shutdown the entire domain

update the PREFIX_OPSS password using wlst

$ cd /product/version/oracle_common/common/bin/

$ ./wlst.sh

$wlst_offline:modifyBootStrapCredential(jpsConfigFile='/wls_domains/domain/config/fmwconfig/jps-config-jse.xml',username='PREFIX_OPSS', password='Pa33word')

it will through a warning like

**
Nov 13, 2017 12:12:06 PM oracle.security.opss.internal.runtime.ServiceContextManagerImpl getContext
WARNING: Bootstrap services are used by OPSS internally and clients should never need to directly read/write bootstrap credentials. If required, use Wlst or configuration management interfaces.
**

ignore this warning and re-run the same command & it will work

now start the admin server

NOTE: if the domain includes manged servers spread across multiple host, STEP2 will be followed in each host.

STEP 3

update the PREFIX_OPSS password from console

services > data sources > opss_data_source > connectionPool > password

confirm user once from shown properties and update the same password

save changes

activate changes

restart any service if it ask for

test the connection it should say:

 Message icon - SuccessTest of opss-data-source on server xxxxx_xxxxx was successful.

then start remaining servers provided you have updated password for all user first from database and then from console

  2. Considering that reinstalling the whole system will remove all your settings and files, many people rely on using a password reset program to remove the password from your computer & allow you to gain access to it again.reset windows 10 password
