If you ever forget the SYS password for your Oracle 11g/10g database below is an easy way to reset it:
- Open a command prompt. (START->RUN->cmd)
- At the prompt type ‘sqlplus /nolog’
- connect / as sysdba
- Once your connected to the DB, you can change the SYS password by typing the following sql statement:
ALTER USER sys IDENTIFIED BY new_password;
Hope this helps.
