I am trying to use Database Replay in 11g Release 1 using Enterprise Manager. In the last step it asks for 'Host Credentials' to start the capture. But when i give the username and password for the host, it throws error as 'Invalid username/password' all the time.

where am i going wrong?

So the user or password are not correct for the host.

If I were you, I would start by using the command line interface. When you are comfortable with that, try using the OEM interface. To do a capture is simple. For example, from SQL*Plus:
host mkdir c:\tmp\d1
create directory d1 as 'c:\tmp\d1';
grant all on directory d1 to public;
exec dbms_workload_capture.start_capture('jcap','D1');

--do whatever you want to do....

exec dbms_workload_capture.finish_capture;

Thanks for your advice. But the problem is not with Database Replay. The problem is with the host credentials in the Enterprise Manager.
For example, when i try to startup or shutdown the instance using the OEM, it asks for host credentials. But it throws this error 'Error Message'.
I guess it is not able to verify the host credentials.

Yes, i know that but why? I have given the correct linux username and password that i use to login to my OEL box.
The user is oracle and it is in the oinstall group.

Oracle is too dumb to lie.

If you are correct & Oracle wrongly throw error, then your only recourse is to file a Bug Report with Oracle.

BTW, Oracle V11.1 is NOT certified on V6 Kernel!

But i can login with the same username and password to the OEL box.
And i can also do : connect / as sysdba

But the problem is only with EM host credentials.
i am putting username:oracle and password:*******

Am i missing anything here?

above does NOT use SQL*Net and will succeed regardless of the strings entered to the right & to the left of the slash character; like below!

connect fubar/ID10T as sysdba

EM uses & requires SQL*Net & the listener and validates the password against the content of the external password file.

Have you done any tests? I would change my Linux password to something very simple (such as lower case oracle) log off and on Linux to be sure, then try it as host cedentials.

I changed my password to something similar, logged off and then again tried for the host credentials. But i get the same error
./fa/10802/0/

I think it has something to do with sql net configuration.

password for networked access for "as sysdba" is NOT stored in the DB along with all the "regular" passwords.

In your screen shot, there is no message that says the credentials are wrong. Why do you think that is that problem?

I think that host credentials are the problem because in many sections of OEM like Database Replay and Backup it gives error as 'Failed to verify credentials'.

Here is a screenshot of the error in the last step of Database Replay.

So use the command line interface. I've already shown you what to do.

Okay, yes i think i should do it through SQL*plus and not waste my time anymore with this. I just wanted to do an upgrade case study as done by Arup Nanda.
Thank you all for your support.

I will revisit this post if i find out what the problem was.
