Hi Folks.

To disable MD5 hashing in stored password for user SYS, I´m just trying to remove HTTP digest authentication.

Do you know if it´s possible and how to do it ?

SQL> select * from dba_digest_verifiers where username='SYS';

USERNAME                                                                                                                         HAS DIG

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- --- ---

SYS                                                                                                                              YES MD5

SQL> alter user sys http digest disable;

alter user sys http digest disable


ERROR at line 1:

ORA-28036: HTTP digest authentication cannot be configured for global or external user
