The document is to help find out if the database password is changed. Also gives the steps to update the encrypted password in the configuration file.


Environment Autosys 11.3.5
Problem        The scheduler and the application server fails to start with the following error messages

   CAUAJM_E_18401 Function <Olog> invoked from <openProc> failed <232>   
   CAUAJM_E_18402 ORA-01017: invalid username/password; logon denied 


You can check if the encrypted password in the config file is the same as the current password of the autosys user in database


# Keyword: DBAccess=username/password
# Defines  the user name and password (in encrypted format) used by
# the scheduler and  application server to connect to the database.
# The database user name  and  password is  defined  during  the CA
# Workload Automation AE installation.

We can find the encrypted password of the current autosys user by using the autosys_secure command
