Background | Overview

In order to administer a database remotely over a network by using tools such as Enterprise Manager, you need to create a password file. The password file allows DBAs to be authenticated when a database is not open.


Create a password file for the COIN database and configure it.


Be sure to determine the proper name and location for the password file based on the operating system and instance name. Remember to shut down the database before you create the password file and to set the REMOTE_LOGIN_PASSWORDFILE parameter before you restart it.
