That's typical a database error, you might need a DBA to help you if you don't have DBA access to the underlying Oracle database. You should also investigate whether the {hive_user} password didn't expire

If you have DBA privileges then you need to login to the Oracle database to unlock the account. if your hive account user name is {hive} at the Oracle host CLI

$ connect sys /as sysdba

Once connected then run the below SQL

SQL> alter user hive account unlock;

That should do the magic, furthermore to get all the expired passwords run the below

SQL> select username,account_status from dba_users where account_status like '%EXPIRED%'
or account_status like '%LOCKED%';

If the password expired then do the following

SQL> alter user {hive_user} identified by new_password;

To avoid expiry of password like of the hive set the default profile limit to unlimited.


SQL> alter profile DEFAULT limit PASSWORD_REUSE_TIME unlimited; 
SQL> alter profile DEFAULT limit PASSWORD_LIFE_TIME unlimited;

That should help

Please can you update on this thread. As stated the above error is due to the underlying oracle database user account getting locked.
