I'm having problems connecting to the database using wallet credentials. Just trying to set up a local environment for development which requires passwords to be held securely. Database and Client running on same host. I'm not a DBA or Admin so apologies if this is a stupid problem! I have searched online however and followed a number of tips, none of which have helped. I'd appreciate any advice to get this working. I've pasted below the steps I have taken and the error:

$ sqlplus /@mark_orcl as sysdba

You could also use:
$ export ORACLE_SID=ORCL
$ sqlplus <username>/<password>

sqlplus /@mark_orcl as sysdba has the same error

ORACLE_SID is set already:

$ echo $ORACLE_SID
orcl

sqlplus username/password works (see original post)

Thanks

If I remember correctly, you do need to have sql.authentication_services configured in your sqlnet.ora, perhaps set it to (ALL) and try again?

And, to do the Moderator bit:

Welcome to the forum. Please read our OraFAQ Forum Guide and How to use [code] tags and make your code easier to read

explain why you are using V11 sqlplus to connect to V12 database.
How many different ORACLE_HOME directories exist on this system?

Ah, well spotted, BS.

@OP, have you set your TNS_ADMIN variable to point to the directory where the sqlnet.ora file with the wallet location exists?

Thanks for your questions. The application server requirements for the application are Fusion Middleware 11g (WebLogic Server 11g and Oracle Forms 11g). So I assume that this is why the client is 11. Database requirements for the application are 12c. Giving the mismatch of versions.

The database and application servers are running on the same host. ORACLE_HOME was set to one thing to install and configure database but then changed when I created the wallet etc to be the application server home. I have no idea if that is correct or not but the ORACLE_HOME seems to need to be changed to compile forms etc, i.e. to application server. I don't know if that answers the question or not?

TNS_ADMIN is set to where the sqlnet.ora file is located that I pasted here.

I added SQLNET.AUTHENTICATION_SERVICES=all but it has not solved the problem

Apologies for not following the standards and for the bad formatting of my code. I can re-paste if needed.

No. SQL*Plus client version is/can be different to your Fusion Middleware install, just FYI.

So do you think an upgrade of sqlplus might solve the issue?

As BlackSwan asked, it would be worth investigating how many Oracle homes you already have on the server. What does the following yield, for example?
$ cat /etc/oratab

There's nothing in /etc/oratab except comments

ORACLE_HOME is /oracle/db/ohome for database and currently set to /oracle/fmw/Oracle_FRHome3 for app server. Multiple/duplicate (incomplete) app server installations due to failed Forms installations.

I happen to be teaching a course on Oracle security this week, and this demo worked for me earlier today. Try it:
md \tmp\john
mkstore -wrl \tmp\john -create
mkstore -wrl \tmp\john -createCredential nopass scott tiger
mkstore -wrl \tmp\john -listCredential

copy con \tmp\john\tnsnames.ora
nopass=(description=(address=(protocol=tcp)(host=127.0.0.1)(port=1521))(connect_data=(service_name=orcl)))

copy con \tmp\john\sqlnet.ora
wallet_location=(source=(method=file)(method_data=(directory=\tmp\john)))
sqlnet.wallet_override=true

set TNS_ADMIN=\tmp\john

sqlplus /@nopass

Nostalgia! Love it, John Smile

For those younger than me, CON stands for CONsole. Like stdin in Unix. To exit out, press <CTRL>-C to save your keyboard input to the specified file, "\tmp\john\tnsnames.ora"

Thanks John. I think this is pretty much what I've already tried and doesn't work unfortunately.
