ORA-28001 the password has expired (DBD Error:OCISessionBegin)

It seems that when you're experiencing a ORA-28001, or if the enterprise manager is unable to connect to the database instance, the probable cause to the issue is that the SYSMAN user password has expired. Not a problem, you an can unlock this user with the example below (in this case, the password for the SYSMAN is 'password')

Other Users expired

Once I made the alteration to the database above and re-entered into the enterprise manager, I was then notified that other user account passwords has also expired (no surprise considering they have been for about 1 year now!).


Agent connect

Once I logged back into the enterprise manager, I then received confirmation that the database, the listener and the agent is up and running.
