I couldn’t find anybody asking/complaining about this issue; thus I am starting this thread. ( or I couldn’t find it?)
Why does it take TOAD over 60 seconds to return with an ORA-01017 error - false login credentials?
So my question is NOT about failing to login, but ONLY about the time it takes to get the error. I sometimes fat-finger or use the wrong password from a different database and as the DBA & developer I have to remember several passwords. I know you can save the passwords, but our password as DBA (a) change frequently for security, (b) bad practice to save passwords.
All ORACLE tools return the error immediately.
