ESH&Q Oracle Web server update
The ESH&Q Oracle Web server now uses Services accounts for log-in rather than a KCA certificate or an Oracle database log-in account, as was previously required. The ESH&Q Oracle data entry forms server continues to require your ESH&Q Oracle database log-in information. For help recognizing the different authentication prompts you may see when accessing forms on the ESH&Q web page, please view this Knowledge Base article: https://fermi.service-now.com/kb_view_customer.do?sysparm_article=KB0011807. If you have any questions about this change or have issues logging in, please contact the Service Desk at x2345 or via the web at http://servicedesk.fnal.gov.
