RE: ora-01031 /01017 when connecting as internal

I have received this error before on 8.1.6 when the sqlnet.authentication_services in sqlnet.ora was set to (BEQ,NONE). Once I commented this line out, I was able to connect internal with a password. The remote_login_passwordfile was set to exclusive in my case.

Look at your password file. Does it reflect your last oradim launch date ? If not, delete it manually, delete the services with oradim -delete -sid, etc and then recreate them.
