During the creation of a LifeKeeper Oracle resource, the user must enter an Oracle user name and password for that instance of Oracle. Should the password of this user name change at some point in the future, the LifeKeeper Oracle resource must be updated on all systems in the cluster with this new password. Failure to do so will leave the Oracle resource out of sync and will prevent it from coming in and out of service properly. LifeKeeper will log an error message to the Application Event Log stating that LifeKeeper cannot remove or restore the resource during any subsequent failover or manual switchover.
The LifeKeeper GUI provides an interface to manage the user account associated with the Oracle resource. See the section on Manage Oracle Database Configuration for more information.
