brarchive works, even though SYSTEM user is locked ?

Hello,

Oracle Release : 10.2

We're planing on performing backup of archive redolog on disk twice a day using ,

the following options :

1) brarchive -p initSMA.sap -s

2) brarchive -p initSMA.sap.dir2 -scd

The problem is , when i launch the brarchive command , I got many Oracle errors messages, apparently the password of SYSTEM user needs to be specified.

But I don't know where ? Now, the system user seems to be locked ...

Should I considere that the errors messages , are only warnings ?

The strage thing is that when I check the archive_copy_dir directory, it seems that the archive redo log have been correctly archivded.

ORA-28000: the account is locked

    Hi Indus,

    To avoid the error ORA-28000 Pls do the following:

    If FAILED_LOGIN_ATTEMPTS is not set to UNLIMITED, you can adjust it as follows:

    ALTER PROFILE DEFAULT LIMIT FAILED_LOGIN_ATTEMPTS UNLIMITED;

    This is also possible for Oracle 10. 1 and earlier and Oracle 10.2 and later.

    If a user is already locked, you can unlock it as follows:

    ALTER USER <username> ACCOUNT UNLOCK;

    Hope this is useful

    Regards

    Umesh

      Hi,

      thank you,.

      I've found useful informations in note 562863

      "A useful alternative to the SYSTEM user when using the BR*TOOLS is to use the OPS$ mechanism by specifying "-u/". This mechanism is also used by DB13 actions by default. "
