I'm trying to get

Sqlplus /nolog
Connect / as sysdba <-- has to be like this, script does not work otherwise

To work on a Windows 2003 server, but keep on getting an ORA-01031 - Insufficient privileges error.

I've followed 3 different notes on metalink, looked all over the web and still can't get it working.

Here are the stats....

Windows 2003 SP3, 64-bit
Oracle Enterprise
2 DB's on the server using a shared listener Does not work for BOTH DB's on the server Rebuild password file
REMOTE_LOGIN_PASSWORDFILE=EXCLUSIVE SQLNET.ora file (tried commeting out sqlnet.auth..., also tried with NTS)

# SQLNET.ORA Network Configuration File
# Generated by Oracle configuration tools.


SQLNET.AUTHENTICATION_SERVICES=(NONE) NAMES.DIRECTORY_PATH=(TNSNAMES,LDAP) I can't figure this out for the life of me. If anyone has any ideas on what I'm doing wrong or some hints in the right direction, I'd be much appreciative!

Thank you!
