    Hello friends,
    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?
    Regards

    Hello jjongman

    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.
    ERROR:
    ORA-01017: invalid username/password; logon denied
    But the user with password able to login.
    Now u understand what i mean
    Regards

    Hi

    I think you have to create ans OPS$ account for them in the database did you do that.And make sure you have the following parameter in your initialisation file

    os_authent_prefix="OPS$"
    remote_os_authent=true

    Regards

    Hi

    Create users with prefix 'OPS$ not suffix 'OPS$' for example
    here is a create user statement

    CREATE USER "OPS$SANTOSH" IDENTIFIED EXTERNALLY DEFAULT TABLESPACE "USER_TS" TEMPORARY TABLESPACE "TEMP_TS" PROFILE DEFAULT ACCOUNT UNLOCK;
