external authentication issue

Hi everyone

We introduced external authentication on windows 2000.

I had the following init.ora parameter set

REMOTE_LOGIN_PASSWORDFILE = EXCLUSIVE
OS_AUTHENT_PREFIX= ""
and i forgot to set REMOTE_OS_AUTHENT = true.

connect with a / didn't work (of course).

I searched on Metalink and found 2 possible causes

the REMOTE_OS_AUTHENT = true parameter was not set in init.ora and the SQLNET.AUTHENTICATION_SERVICES = (NTS) was not set in sqlnet.ora
(server and cliŽnt)

I set both parameters and stopped/started the database, but connect / did still not work
(invalid username/password was the message).

When i change SQLNET.AUTHENTICATION_SERVICES in (NONE) (the default value) it WORKED!!

Can anyone explain to me why SQLNET.AUTHENTICATION_SERVICES = (NTS) doesn't work as described
by Metalink.

Thanks in Advance
