One of the standard errors while running JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Standalone Demo is - “Unable to Locate Security Server”.
But what when you get that error after 6 or odd months when your standalone was working perfectly fine?
Our JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Standalone Demo 9.0.2 or 9.0 or prior running on Oracle Database will cease to work after 6 months. This is due to the Oracle Database Password Expiration policies, which just expires the passwords. You can verify this in your JDE.LOG files, which would say Unable to logon – Password Expired.
The issue above can also occur in one of the following situations:
- If the Deployment Server or FAT client is replaced with a new hardware or hard drive after a crash or as part of an upgrade.
- If the SYSTEM/SYS password of the Local Oracle database is not getting encrypted for some reason and there are errors in C:\ReconfigureMSDE.log
Thankfully, Oracle has a solution to fix this. This applies to JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Tools – Version: 8.98 (Oracle Support ID: 1064181.1). Here are the steps to connect to the Local Oracle (OEE) database with NT administrator credentials. Once connected as an admin, then simply reset the SYSTEM/SYS password.
- Navigate to the OEE directory and locate the sqlnet.ora file. It should be located in the path
- Change this file (sqlnet.ora) and set SQLNET.AUTHENTICATION_SERVICES=(NTS).
- Restart the OEE E1Local instance.
- Login to the machine with an administrator account.
- Connect to the local database using “sqlplus / as sysdba”.
- Run the SQL command: Alter user system identified by admin;
- Now exit sqlplus and run ReconfigureMSDE.exe (at system\bin32). You will now be able to encrypt the password for SYSTEM/SYS.
- Go back and disable the NT authentication in OEE by setting the SQLNET.AUTHENTICATION_SERVICES=(NONE) in the same sqlnet.ora.
- Restarting the E1Local instance is required.
Once this is done, you will be able to access / login to your JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Standalone.
