In Oracle 121, password file can be store into the ASM. I think it is a good idea but the problem is when you want to copy or reply to another system. You need perform a copy of this file. In this case I goint to show the pwcopy command from asmcmd. Using pwcopy you can perform a copy of a password file, for asm or database instance, to another path into the asm or out to the filesystem.
Please look the below example;
ASMCMD [+DB12C_PROD_DATOS_DG/db12c/PASSWORD] > pwcopy pwddb12c.299.956724623 /export/home/grid2/pwdfile_anr copying +DB12C_PROD_DATOS_DG/db12c/PASSWORD/pwdwebp.299.956724623 -> /export/home/grid2/pwdfile_anr ASMCMD [+DB12C_PROD_DATOS_DG/db12c/PASSWORD] > exit grid2@/export/home/grid2 $ ls -rlt total 125574 drwxr-xr-x 2 grid2 oinstall 3 Feb 1 2017 Opatch drwxr-xr-x 3 grid2 oinstall 5 Feb 2 2017 PSU drwxr-xr-x 2 grid2 oinstall 8 Jun 14 09:00 admin -rw-r----- 1 grid2 oinstall 7680 Aug 31 09:14 pwdfile_anr
In this case I performed a copy of a password file to the file system.
