    Hi All,
    i just finally installed ORACLE 9.0.1 and I am having the above error when I try to login as sys or system. Can anyone give me some pointers as to what might have happened and what I could do to correct it.

    Thanks,
    Mee.
    God Bless

    NLS_LANG is wrong. Check if you have _ (underscore) You might have put a - (dash) my mistake.

    If you use unix then:
    check NLS_LANG variable in (.profile, .bash_profile, .login)

    If you use Win box then:
    check NLS_LANG variable in windows register

    local mashine -- oracle -- NLS_LANG

    List of valid values u van find in (for example):
    http://download-west.oracle.com/otnd...a90236/toc.htm

    if u have valid oracle account from any client boxes u can get list of valid values for NLS_LANG in

    select * from v$nls_valid_values;
