i can't log onto my Grid either as "sys" through the web console.  but, i've never tried until just now.  is there a reason why you want to log in as "sys"?When i do log on as an administrator and go to setup -> Administrators, i can see "sys" but i've never done anything with it.  I've logged in as SYSMAN then created my own Administrators.Ya, there's definitely no way in the Console logon to do SYS/<password> AS SYSDBA HTHLyall

  Did you set this parameter SQLNET.AUTHENTICATION_SERVICES = (NONE) in   sqlnet.ora.

    Hi gurus,
    I just had 10g grid control installed on my OEL 5.3     machine(selected
    option new database). I have a couple of questions to ask:

    I tried to logon to http://host.domain:4889 as "sys" user but it     says
    "error: login operation failed"

    I try to logon with "sys as sysdba", then i get "this user is not     a
    valid enterprise manager administrator"

    I thought it might be a problem with password file and hence     renamed
    the old orapwemrep and created a new orapwemrep with orapwd     utility
    but then when i logon with "sys as sysdba" I get "your username     and/or
    password are invalid"

    Also when I logon to the database through sqlplus, any junk     password
    for user sys works. I remember removing dba administrator group     on
    windows servers long back to fix a similar issue. But I do not     know
    how to fix this on my linux box. Btw, my remote_password_file is     set
    to exclusive.

    Please note that I am able to logon as "system" to     http://host.domain:4889

    Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks.     --
