Oracle Passwrod Reset - ORA-28221: Replace not specified

Oracle Passwrod Reset - ORA-28221: Replace not specified


ORA-28221: Replace not specified

Root Cause:

When a user name has a profile that has a password verify function set and the user tries to change the password using “ALTER USER” without the REPLACE clause, and also the user doesn’t have ALTER USER privilege Oracle will generate the “ORA-28221: REPLACE not specified” error message. So the user needs to include the “REPLACE” clause.


Please navigate to <PMP installation directory>/conf and add open system_properties.conf and add a new property oraclePwdReset.localAccount=true and save the file. Now restart PMP service and then try Password reset.
