How to Resolve DBT-06208: The password entered does not conform to the Oracle recommended standards.

DBT-06208

During database creation, we saw a confirmation window contains error DBT-06208 popped up from Database Configuration Assistant (DBCA) GUI.

DBT-06208: The password entered does not conform
DBT-06208: The password entered does not conform

Also, the error might be thrown during database creation in silent mode.

[oracle@test ~]$ dbca -silent -createDatabase -responseFile ~/dbca.rsp
[WARNING] [DBT-06208] The 'SYS' password entered does not conform to the Oracle recommended standards.
   CAUSE:
a. Oracle recommends that the password entered should be at least 8 characters in length, contain at least 1 uppercase character, 1 lower case character and 1 digit [0-9].
b.The password entered is a keyword that Oracle does not recommend to be used as password
   ACTION: Specify a strong password. If required refer Oracle documentation for guidelines.
...

DBT-06208 means that the password you specified for SYS, SYSTEM or PDBADMIN does not comply with the recommended password complexity, you can either use a stronger one or just ignore it.

To overcome the error, you can cancel the confirmation and go back to user credential setting step and change it to a stronger one, which should contain:

  • At least 1 uppercase letter.
  • At least 1 lowercase letter.
  • At least 1 digit.

Or maybe you can just ignore the warning by clicking "Yes" in the confirmation page and decide to continue.

However, in silent mode, DBCA throws DBT-06208 to warn you then continue to proceed, there's no way back.
