Enterprise Portal J2EE - Lost Oracle passwords


Our client has a prior installation of EP 6.0 SP2 on Oracle 9.2 on

Windows 2000 implemented by another vendor.

In order to upgrade to EP 7.0 on Oracle 10g AIX 5.3 eventually, we

understand that there is an intermediate step for migration from EP 6.0

SP2 to Netweaver04 platform EP 6.0 SP9 and above.

During the migration steps described in:

one of the steps is to hook up the target EP 6.0 SP9 system to the EP

6.0 SP2 source system databases by changing tnsname.ora file. This

connection requires the Oracle SYS and other administrator passwords

which the client no longer has.

Please advise on how to change the passwords or retrieve the passwords

without affecting the EP services. We have tried to reset the

passwords, which no longer allows EP to be started up after that. Since

the source system is part of the production support landscape, it must

be up and running while the project continues to upgrade on the test

target system.

I have seen thread: How to retrieve the password of client 800

but it appears to apply for R/3 or ECC only. Will this work the same way for EP with J2EE engine only?

Thank you!
