Hi,

I have a 2 node Oracle RAC 11gr2 cluster on Linux environment.

If I change the password of Os user 'Oracle' on one node of the RAC cluster, do I need to sync the same password in all other nodes as well?

Appreciate your inputs.

Regards,
Aravind G

I do not believe it is required that the passwords be the same, however for your sanity they probably should be.

Hi,
You can change it. The cluster do not use it.
