? - you need 15 rep to vote up, the OP can't do it yet (and, besides which, owing to timezone diffs and other commitments, may not have seen anything here since posting the question). – Le Comte du Merde-fou Oct 20 '09 at 12:49

The scott user is disabled by default. You will typically set a system password at the time of installation or database creation. If not, you could try system/change_on_install or system/manager.

Wasn't it sys/change_on_install, or have things changed since 8i? – Le Comte du Merde-fou Oct 20 '09 at 12:43
On 8i it was system/manager and sys/change_on_install, but things have changed since then. In 10g you are asked to provide a password, but if you're running a scripted database creation one of the old defaults are often used for either account. – Roy Oct 20 '09 at 13:25

In oracle 10g scott/tiger is not enabled by default. You must unlock the account during installation. I assume this can also be done later using an admin account (sys or sysdba)
