Lost Oracle SYS and SYSTEM password?
Here are a few ways to reset those passwords once forgetting them:
Approach 1: SQLPLUS
To change the password of SYSTEM:
$ sqlplus "/ as sysdba"
SQL> show user
SQL> passw system
Next, to change the password of SYS:
$ sqlplus "/ as system"
SQL> passw sys
Then you should be able to log on the SYS and SYSTEM users, with the passwords you just typed in.
Approach 2: creating password file
1) stop oracle instance service first
2) find the PWD<SID>
3) rename the PWD<SID>
4) create a new pwd file by issuing the below command:
5) start oracle instance server again.
Then you should be able to get in with the SYS user and change other passwords using the first way above.
