Oracle will still authenticate users who aren't defined with external authentication, so unless I'm missing something, I see no reason for you to retain SQLNET.AUTHENTICATION_SERVICES = (NONE).

Subject: Re: SQLNET.AUTHENTICATION_SERVICES = (NONE) results in ERROR: ORA-01031: insufficient privileges
I should have been little more informative. I want to retain SQLNET.AUTHENTICATION_SERVICES = (NONE) in my sqlnet.ora and would want oracle database to authenticate the users. Since SQLNET.AUTHENTICATION_SERVICES = (NONE) is specified, OS authentication is disabled and hence / as sysdba fails with insufficient privileges. But dbstart/dbshut use / as sysdba to start database from /etc/oratab with values 'Y' against the instance names. sys/password_at_orams works fine while connecting normally but I cannot/donot want to hard code sys password in dbstart/dbshut scripts(No one would do that). TWO_TASK does not work. When set TWO_TASK basically is a replacement for _at_orams where orams is the tns connection name. It is not set in my environment. I hope I made myself clear here. Please let me know if you need more info. Thanks for your help.
