Changing Oracle user password will affect oracle db?


We have an oracle user account in our RHEL 3.0.
Using the oracle user we installed oracle 9i database. We are using the same oracle user account for updating the patch and all oracle db related issues.
We were running the db successfully without any problem for the past 2 years.
Now i would like to change the password for oracle user in our RHEL 3.0. Will it affect oracle db? What precautionary steps i have to take?
Please treat this as urgent.

Thanks & Regards,

Changing the Linux (RHEL) oracle account's password will not affect the Oracle database. It might affect applications that sign onto the Linux server using the oracle account that have the password hard-coded. It won't affect applications that connect directly to the Oracle database.
