If I'm not mistaken, that command changes the non-sysdba sys password for all the instances of that database. The orapwd command does one instance at a time as they have their own password file.
Your command will modify the password file on the node on which you run the command. You either have to copy the file manually to the other nodes or run the same command on all nodes of the cluster.

Hi, I am currently dealing with the SYS password in a RAC environment. I get confused with the information I had searched so for. I especially want to know the relations between the password file and ALTER USER SYS IDENTIFIED BY <sys_passpord>; command. What changes, after changing both or one by one. Regards, Derya.
