    User ABC01 lacks CREATE SESSION privilege; logon denied

    • Article Type: General
    • Product: Aleph
    • Product Version: 18.01

    Description:
    After running Upgrade Express v16-v18, I am trying to use sqlplus like "s+ abc01" but it is not working:

    ERROR:
    ORA-01045: user ABC01 lacks CREATE SESSION privilege; logon denied

    Is that not going to work until the upgrade is finished?

    I *can* do "s+ usm01".

    Resolution:
    Checking with util f/4, I see that data has been loaded for abc01, abc50, etc.

    The create_ora_user procedure for abc01 should have included the CREATE SESSION privilege. Could someone there have changed it?

    I assume that, since the data is loaded, you don't want to rerun create_ora_user (which wipes out all the tables).

    You can do this:

    > sqlplus system/[system_password]
    SQL> ALTER USER ABCnn PROFILE ALEPH_PROFILE;
    SQL> GRANT ALEPH_LIBRARY TO ABCnn;
    SQL> exit

    Note: The default Oracle password for user "system" is "manager". But, you can also run this as ALEPH_DBA user.
