The Oracle DBA changed the password subsequently Manager is not able to connect to the database with the original default password. The Manager connection credentials must be updated with the new password.


The connection credentials for Capital Manager to connect to Oracle are stored in the <Capital Install folder>\config\managerprops.xml file on the Manager server machine.

The Capital administrator needs to edit that file, find the element "dbconnection" for the Oracle driver and update the password value:

<dbconnection driver="oracle.jdbc.driver.OracleDriver" hibernateDialect="org.hibernate.dialect.Oracle10gDialect" initialconnections="10" maxconnections="60" password="manager" pool="C3P0" url="jdbc:oracle:thin:@localhost:1521:dev" username="system" waitifbusy="true"/>

Save the file and re-start Capital Manager.
