When running the URT, the expdp fails to run and returns error LRM-00101

LRM-00101: unknown parameter name 'PROTECT/XXXX


Enforce 15.x 

Oracle 12c, 19c 


There was an = sign in the password and expdp is looking for the first = sign to pass all the command line arguments. The password appears to be truncated but export is passing the rest of the password as a command line argument.


  1. Change the Oracle password for the "protect" user to be one without the = sign.
  2. Use dbpasswordchanger to update the "protect" account on the Enforce Server with the new password. 

Additional Information
