I just went through this. This message revolves around orapwd and remote login.  

The following metalink article is good. There is a lot of confusing and contradictory information out there, but I am running the same version you are. My default databases were fine, but I have a couple of database homes that have more than one instance, and they were build by vendor scripts. We would need for info if anything changed, including the SYS password, additional instances in the ORACEL_HOME, are you logging in remotely, etc.  

Try here for starters. 39::::p14_database_id,p14_docid,p14_show_header,p14_show_help,p14_black_ frame,p14_font:NOT,114384.1,1,0,1,helvetica
