What is the default password for SYS?

884659Mar 12 2012 — edited Mar 12 2012
I'm trying to connect to an Oracle 11gR2 database on Linux using sqlplus.

The sys user password version is 10G and sys is one of the usersname returned by the view dba_users_with_defpwd.

Issuing sqlplus sys will get the prompt Enter Password: but I have no idea what password I should enter.

I kind of remember that the installation has a screen to enter password for SYS but I'm not sure what has been done on that screen since I didn't do the installation.

Thanks for any help.
