    Apparently SAP is changing the note and resetting the user/passwords, I'd just wait another day or two.

    Hi,

    The note has just been released.

    Unfortunately, Oracle has cancelled the mentioned users and they cannot be used.

    It looks like SAP-Oracle are currently "discussing" things

    Hello

    Unfortunately for customers who bought the Oracle license from SAP

    (standard case) have short term/midterm no metalink access anymore.

    Oracle has locked the generic metalink accounts for customers.

    As of now there is no excat date for this users back in use..

    Regards

    Hello,

    SAP Note 758563 - Oracle Metalink access for SAP customers has been released today with bad news:

    *********************************************************************** Atttention Because Oracle does not allow generic users for metalink access anymore for any customer due to security reasons, the metalink users SAP customers used in the past (see below) are not working any longer. SAP and Oracle are currently working on a solution. Further details will be announced in this note immediately when available. Please ignore the rest of the note until this header section is removed.

    Best regards,

    Martina

    • The header says:

      Symptom

      ***********************************************************************

      Atttention

      Because Oracle does not allow generic users for metalink access anymore

      for any customer due to security reasons, the metalink users SAP

      customers used in the past (see below) are not working any longer. SAP

      and Oracle are currently working on a solution. Further details will be

      announced in this note immediately when available.

      If a special metalink document is needed please open a message on

      BC-DB-ORA with reference to this note and the request to forward the

      message to Oracle developement support to provide the document.

      Please ignore the rest of the note until this header section is removed.

      ***********************************************************************

      I copy again the bold part:

      the metalink users SAP customers used in the past (see below) are not working any longer.

      so it is normal that the user you mention does NOT work.


      There are NO alternatives, curretnly there no way to access to MOS unless you have a contract directly with oracle.

      If you do not have one and need information from an ORACLE note, the n you have to open a message at SAP requesting that note.
