Nice example of the new password store in 10g R2

I saw a good thread today on my Oracle Security forum titled "external password store" posted by Ivan that gave a good example run through of using the external store in 10g release 2 or rather he shows the errors he received in his first attempt and then the successful use of it in his second go. This looks like a very useful feature in 10g R2 to prevent the need to pass or store or hardcode passwords for os based batch processes.
