You should still be able to log in with the Oracle OS User on the server without a password:

$/home/oracle > sqlplus /nolog

SQL*Plus: Release - Production on Mi Sep 20 10:32:08 2006

SQL> connect / as sysdba

Then you can set the password with "alter user ... identified by ..." to something you don't lose. Wink
