Updating the Oracle database user password property mxe.db.password in results in connection failure during fix pack installation

Technote (troubleshooting)


If you have updated the password used to connect to the database since your initial deployment, you must update the mxe.db.password property in the \applications\maximo\properties\ file before you install a fix pack or perform an upgrade task.

In addition, you must also update the value of the Database.Oracle.SchemaPassword property in the \applications\maximo\properties\ file. The values used for mxe.db.password and Database.Oracle.SchemaPassword must be set to the same value, or an error will occur during the fix pack installation.

Resolving the problem

Set the value for mxe.db.password and Database.Oracle.SchemaPassword to the same value and resume the upgrade task.
