Allowing some password change privileges to a user

I have a user who needs to be able to change some other users' passwords. However, I do not want this user to be able to change the sys and system passwords. I'm not sure how this can be done.
I answered a question similar to yours previously. Please see https://searchoracle.techtarget.com/answer/Restricting-password-changes. With a small number of modifications, I think you'll be able to use the same code to achieve what you need as well. Be aware that the user that fires this trigger will need to have the ALTER USER system privilege granted directly to them -- not through a role.
