10gR2 and failed_login_attempts

November 8th, 2006 by Pete

There was a nice post on the pythian group today about the fact that Oracle since has set a value for the failed_login_attempts parameter of the DEFAULT profile. This caused an issue for Alex Gorbachev. Its an interesting conflict between adding security to Oracle and causing problems with existing systems and migrations. Also note my comments on defining specific values for profiles for different groups of users. The post is titled "Oracle 10.2 Migrations – Account LOCKED(TIMED) and FAILED_LOGIN_ATTEMPTS"
