ORA-28000: the account is locked – PeopleSoft

Hey everyone,

Just a small PeopleSoft issue I ran into while running an SQR:

(SQR 5528) ORACLE OCISessionBegin(RDBMS) error 28000 in cursor 0:
   ORA-28000: the account is locked
(SQR 4701) Cannot logon to the database.

SQR for PeopleSoft: Program Aborting.

For some reason the sysadm account had been locked, thankfully there’s a fairly easy fix:

1
ALTER USER sysadm ACCOUNT UNLOCK;

If you don’t have access you may need to get a DBA to run it.
