I got a problem while configuring users through OS,my OS is Win2000 and Oracle version is 8.1.6. I followed the same principle what i followed in my production database consisting of Oracle 8.0.5. As Iam doing it on my Test machine.Is there any special considerations to be taken into account while authorizing client through OS,even i added them in ORA_DBA.I kept the the parameter Remote_login_passwordfile=none. Whats went wrong?
In parameter file OS authentication the symbol i used is OPS$ as in Production and made the Remote_login_password as None and created the user with this authentication and made the user as External and given the proper privileges.When i tried to login with OS authentication as '/' followed by connecting string it says that invalid username and password.
ORA-01017: invalid username/password; logon denied
But the user with password able to login.
Now u understand what i mean
Again posting the same problem since iam unable login with OS auhtentication,shortly iam going to install Oracle 8i on Windows 2000.If any one who is successfully implementing OS authentication with Oracle 8i on Win2000 will be of a greate help.
