We have a problem connecting to a database that we have not seen before, and I am wondering if any else has encountered it.

OS: Windows2003 32-bit
Database Version:
Only one Oracle Home on the box

There are six databases running on this server. We can connect to five of them just fine.

When setting ORACLE_SID to the problem SID, and trying
"Connect sys as sysdba" we get
"ORA-12546: TNS:permission denied"

When we do "Connect sys_at_sidname as sysdba" it connects fine.

Why would one database have a problem when the others all work?
