How To Change / Reset Password or Unlock AVSYS, AVadmin , AV Auditor, AV Super Auditor User Accounts in Oracle AVDF 12.2?


In this blog post, I will describe altering the Audit Vault 12.2 administrative users. In Audit Vault 12.2 the Database Vault Account Manager is configured for OS authentication.

Let me make a connection to Audit Vault server using ssh as follows:

ssh -l support avserver
X11 forwarding request failed on channel 0
Last login: Wed Apr 19 14:15:42 2023 from

Get the name of the Database Vault Account Manager user and open an OS session as that user:

[support@avs005056b3e636~]$ su –

[root@avs005056b3e636 ~]# grep -i “dv” /etc/passwd

“dvaccountmgr” is used to manage database users.

“dvowner” is used to manage database vault option.

[root@avs005056b3e636~]# su – dvaccountmgr

Connect to the database as the user and alter the user:

bash-4.1$ sqlplus /
