Incorrect Oracle Home User Password during Oracle 12c DB creation using DBCA

Recommended Posts

I have already installed Oracle 12c in my windows machine.

I am trying to create new database using DBCA. I am facing issue while given password for Oracle Home User Password(Incorrect Oracle Home User Password)

I have tried to reset the password. But getting the below error.

C:\Users\Admin>orahomeuserctl updpwd -user oracle
Enter new Password:
OHUC-1026 : unable to authenticate the new password

Any one please suggest to resolve this issue.

Hi Kmuthu,

You need to insure that your PATH and ORACLE_HOME are set properly!


Go into the Windows registry and turn of the service user authentication. You can go into HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE>SOFTWARE>ORACLE
Then go to KEY_OraDB12Home1 (or whatever home you’re needing to update) and then change the Data Value in the ORACLE_SVCUSER_PWDREQ Key from 1 to 0.

Good Luck!
