Changing Oracle Identity Manager Database Password – 11g

Oracle Identity Manager uses two database schemas for storing Oracle Identity Manager operational and configuration data. It uses Oracle Identity Manager MDS schema for storing configuration-related information and Oracle Identity Manager schema for storing other information. Any change in the schema password requires changes on Oracle Identity Manager configuration.

Before changing the database password, shutdown the managed servers that host Oracle Identity Manager.
