SQL> connect sys/change_on_install@wizerp as sysdba
ERROR:
ORA-01017: invalid username/password; logon denied

You should have a password file, and SYS should have the same password as is in that file.

If You have no idea what I am talking about, just try to alter SYS' password (no change, but it will put the correct password in the password file)

> alter user sys identified by change_on_install;

Then try to connect again.

thanx for ur prompt response
i got it right
At my local machine the password for sysdba was gateway
but at remote server the password used for sysdba was change_on_install
so my perception is when we are trying to connect as sysdba either at remote side or local the password file of local client is used
so when we are trying to connect as sysdba to remote server,the password conflicts (at local and remote side )occurs causing invalid username/password
but when i changed the password for sysdba at remote side
alter user sys identified by gateway(the same password at local)
as you suggested Now the problem has been resolved
Am i right Sir?
Will you plzzz add some comments?
anyhow thanks a lot

Nice to hear that it worked Smile

It is not a local password You used.
"gateway" is the password stored in the password file on the server.

When You alteret SYS's password, You effectively change the password for SYS in the database as well as in the password file. So now they are the same.....

Look up "password file" in the docs.

Dear Sir
I know the password for sysdba is stored in password file whic exists at server side
and when we are about to connect as sysdba from a client then
sys as sysdba will be authenticated from password file at remote server
am i right Sir?
But Now the confusion is
i have 8.1.7 at client and password for sysdba is set as "gateway"
and the password for sysdba at remote server is set as change_on_install (By Default)
Although when i issue
SQL>connect sys/change_on_install@remotedb as sysdba
sys should be authenticated from password file at remote server
am i right Sir?

But it was unable to connect and when i tried
SQL>connect sys/change_on_install@remotedb
it was successfully connected
May be i am wrong 100%
but when i set the same password as "gateway" at remote server by
SQL>alter user sys identified by gateway;
This will the change the password in database as well as in password file
and when i tried
SQL>connect sys/gateway@remotedb as sysdba
connected
Now i am not clear rather i am confused what is happening behind this?
Can u guide me in this regard Sir?
thanx in advance

Hi

As I wrote, You should really read about it in the docs.
It is not very hard to use, and You will come to love it.

http://www.oracle.com/pls/tahiti/tahiti.drilldown?remark=&word=password+file&book=&preference=

Fx.

Concepts + Authentication of Database Administrators:
http://download-west.oracle.com/docs/cd/A87860_01/doc/server.817/a76965/c25acces.htm#6126

and

Administrator's Guide + Using an Authentication Password File
http://download-west.oracle.com/docs/cd/A87860_01/doc/server.817/a76956/dba.htm#1167

In this, You find

Quote:

PASSWORD
This parameter sets the password for SYSOPER and SYSDBA. If you issue the ALTER USER statement to change the password after connecting to the database, both the password stored in the data dictionary and the password stored in the password file are updated. The INTERNAL user is supported for backwards compatibility only. This parameter is mandatory.

Hi

I think You are hiding some rather important details.

Your clients do not log on as SYS - do they?

Your database does not shutdown and startup all by it self, when You log on as SYS - right?

Is it a joke of the day! You want to access another computer and you will go there by plane or by bus?
