ESH&Q Oracle Web server update

Authentication requirements for ESH&Q Oracle forms (forms that begin with www-esh.fnal.gov) will change on Thursday. The ESH&Q Oracle Web server will be updated to use Services accounts for log-in rather than a KCA certificate or an Oracle database log-in account, as was previously required. Authentication for the ESH&Q Oracle data entry forms server will not change and will continue to require your ESH&Q Oracle database log-in information.

The ESH&Q Oracle Web server will be down for approximately 30 minutes between 5 a.m. and 7 a.m. on Thursday, Oct. 22, while this update is installed.

Since the various ESH&Q forms use different software applications, some forms on the ESH&Q Web page will continue to use your KCA certificate. Read more about recognizing the different authentication prompts you may see.

If you have any questions about this change or have issues logging in after 7 a.m. on Oct. 22, please contact the Service Desk at x2345 or via the Web.
