I have joined a company very recently who deploy their product on both Oracle and SQL Server platforms. Theyt seem to have no clue about their dba access passwords for Oracle. How do I get to these passwords? Is there a backdoor or utility which can help me get the passwords on these databases? This is Oracle on Windows? Thanks for your help, Sumesh

    Hi, There is no way of getting passwords from the Oracle database. If you need a specific user and does not know the password, neither want to change it, you can do a select on the dba_users views and take a look at the password. This value you can use to "reset" the password with alter user ... identified by values '....'. You can give the user temporary another password that way. Greetz.
