1/ Is password file in the correct directory?
2/ Did you restart the database?

ORA-01990:	error opening password file 'string'
Cause:	An attempt to open the specified password file failed because of one of the following errors:

    * An operating system error occurred.
    * ORAPWD is already running, so the password file is locked.

The environment variables ORA_sid_PWFILE and ORA_PWFILE are not set.
Action:	Check for the above causes and correct as necessary.
