Change the default


   SQLNET.AUTHENTICATION_SERVICES= (NONE) in the client's sqlnet.ora. Worked for us (there may be some parameters I'm also unaware of, so sorry if this is an incomplete answer).

Subject: Need OS User from Web Service call

Currently for our .Net applications call a web service that runs in IIS which then access the Oracle database. When I query v$session the OS User listed as making the call shows as "SYSTEM". Does anybody know if it is possible to have the actual OS User that made the originating call? I am not sure if this is possible because the call is going through a middle tier. Thanks.
