I can't connect remotely to my database using - sqlplus sys/sys@prod1 as sysdba
but can connect as
sqlplus "/as sysdba" or sqlplus sys/sys


SQL*Plus: Release 10.2.0.3.0 - Production on Wed Jun 24 20:10:39 2009 Copyright (c) 1982, 2006, Oracle. All Rights Reserved.
ERROR:
ORA-01031: insufficient privileges
Enter user-name:


When I ran select * from V$PWFILE_USERS; It returns -
no rows selected

Recreated the control file twice as follow -
orapwd file=$ORACLE_HOME/dbs/orapwprod1 password=sys entries=200

And bounce the database but still getting the above error. I connect like sqlplus "/as sysdba" and attempted to grant sysdba to sys and get the folling -

SQL> grant sysdba to sys;
grant sysdba to sys
*
ERROR at line 1:
ORA-01994: GRANT failed: password file missing or disabled

SQL> show parameter password

NAME TYPE VALUE
------------------------------------ ----------- ------------------------------
remote_login_passwordfile string EXCLUSIVE


I am on a two node RAC and recreated the passowrd file on both node. Node2 is working fine but node one is not.

Does anyone know why V$PWFILE_USERS willl be empty.
