Restoring project error – ”Unable to finalize decryption for the following 32 bytes”
Question ID: 106120

We have exported a QC project db via "expdp" and tried to import the same project db on another Oracle server via "impdp" then restoring the project on a testing ALM server

We have dbid.xml edited correctly to point to new Oracle server and schema name and password.

However when we restored the project in site administration we got the following error message:

"Unable to finalize decryption for the following 32 bytes:"

The database schema's password is not set correctly with the encryption.

Restore the project using plain text password instead of encrypted string.

Here are the steps to take:

1. Remove the project in Site Administration

2. Open the project's dbid.xml file

3. Enter new DB password without encryption, i.e. in text mode
For example TXT:tdtdtd
Where ''tdtdtd'' is the plain text password

4. Go to the Oracle database end and set the same password string for the project DB schema/user

5. Restore the project using the modified dbid.xml
