exachk 18.4 does not run 12.2.0.1 database

For all of you who use exachk and have updated to exachk Version 18.4. There is a known Bug on Oracle databases 12.2.0.1.

While running exachk as root user the program try to connect to the database and this will no work.

You saw the following message:

„OS authentication is not enabled so please enter sysdba privileged user name for <User name>:- sys

Enter password for sys@<User name>:-

SELECT 1 FROM DUAL

*

ERROR at line 1:

ORA-01012: not logged on

Process ID: 0

Session ID: 0 Serial number: 0“

 

The workaround is to use „-shell“ option when calling exachk

# ./exachk -a -o v -shell
