FW: Becoming a user - 10g issue

Oops, I hit reply instead of reply all.

 

You're probably running into a password reuse issue, where you can't
reuse the last N number of passwords.

There's a novel concept: 

You can't have the password to the application account but you have
alter user privilege :)

What does your security department and/or auditors say about doing this?

You don't say what kind of accounts you are logging onto, but if I had
to guess I would guess that they are application accounts.

Wouldn't be better to use the password of the account?

And if you are not allowed to have the password, I guess you're
not allowed to make changes.
