Sun Cluster and Oracle monitor password

Posted in Sun Cluster at 1:37 pm by alessiodini

Recently i worked on a scenario where i found:

– Sun Cluster 3.0
– Solaris 8
– Oracle

My rule was update password’s user needed by cluster for fault monitoring ( connect_string ).
The customer needed a security compliant password , using jolly characters.

During this activity I have tried following characters:

$ – if i use pipp0$123 , when i ran scrgadm -pvv i obtained just ‘pipp0’
. – not good for oracle
* – not good for oracle
@ – good for oracle but not for cluster

After opened a case in SUN , i received a confirm that all versions of Sun Cluster don’t support these characters because there is no control of the string during connection.

Finally i solved with ‘#’ character that was good for oracle and cluster
