    ORA-01045: user XXX01 lacks CREATE SESSION privilege; logon denied

    The user may be missing the ALEPH_SCHEMA role.

    To check if the user is missing the ALEPH_SCHEMA role:
    >sqlplus ALEPH_DBA/[ALEPH_DBA password]
    SQL>select * from DBA_ROLE_PRIVS where grantee='XXX01' and GRANTED_ROLE='ALEPH_SCHEMA';

    If there are no results, you can fix this with the following command:

    SQL>grant ALEPH_SCHEMA to XXX01;
