    Why SYSTEM password is required during adpatch?

    3225864

      When running adpatch in R12.1.3 EBS 12.1.3, it asks for SYSTEM password. Can anyone explain why it is required.

      It is mentioned like "in order to determine your installation configuration". My question is, what are the configurations it checks using SYSTEM password.

       

      AutoPatch needs the password for your 'SYSTEM' ORACLE schema in order to determine your installation configuration.

      Enter the password for your 'SYSTEM' ORACLE schema:

      Connecting to SYSTEM......Connected successfully

       

      Thanks
