oracle 11g install - oracle user passwd- Authentication Token Maniperror
I am trying to install oracle 11g in linux x86_64 GNU/Linux. I need to install the software as oracle user as per installation docs.
But the machine which I got has already oracle enterprise manager and has oracle user under dba groups and I do not know the password.
So I was trying to reset the oracle user password and getting the following issue.
$ sudo su -
Changing password for user oracle
passwd: Authentication Token Manipulation error
I tried removing the password then also
[root@hdg01jj]#passwd -d oracle
Removing password for user oracle
How do I change the password then? Please help as I am very new to linux world.
You need to ask the person who gave you the box for the passwd; I take it this is a legal transaction.
(Its possible that the original setup used distributed passwd system eg NIS/LDAP ... similar to the concept of AD in MS-Windows)
You really need to get the setup/history info of this box from the previous owner.
chown: changing ownership Operation not permitted
Thanks for the reply. Yes I got the oracle user password details from the admin
