fix
The steps are outlined below for restoring corrupted PeopleSoft passwords:

These steps are designed for the following combination of VPMO and Oracle versions:
  • VPMO v5 & v6 on an Oracle 7.x database
  • VPMO v5 on an Oracle 8.x database.

NOTE: These steps were NOT designed for VPMO v6 on an Oracle 8.x database. 

  1.  Clear the pwd history for the ID.
  2. Log onto a SQL session as SYSADM or any privileged user and run the following SQL:

    update sqlcqr.sqlcqr_userdata set pwdhist = NULL where username = 'THEUSERID';
    commit;
  3. Log onto a SQL session as SYSADM or another privileged user and run the included SQL. This will change the Oracle password directly.

    alter user XXX identified by XXX;
    commit;
  4.  Log onto a SQL session as SYSADM or another privileged user and run the included SQL. This will set the new password value into the PeopleSoft PSOPRDEFN table.

    update sysadm.psoprdefn
    set OPERPSWD='XXX', ACCESSPSWD='SYSADM', ACCESSACCTPSWD='UNENCR'
    where OPRID='XXX';
    COMMIT;

    NOTE: Change SYSADM to your local access id if different. ACCESSACCTPSWD='UNENCR' is the value for PeopleSoft 7.x, substitute ENCRYPTED=0 FOR VERSION 7.5.
  5. Logon to the datamover as SYSADM or privileged user and execute the following command exactly as shown:

    ENCRYPT_PASSWORD OPRID;

    This ID should now be able to log into PeopleSoft.
