    If you are on Unix

    check the name of your password file and the name if your sid

    Make sure the sid's case matches that of the environment variable ORACLE_SID. If the environment for ORACLE_SID is set to ORACLE_SID=TEST and the password file is name is orapwtest then you would encounter the ORA-01990.


    You can also try recreating the password file using the orapwd utility.

    It looks like yor are using Oracle on Windows , you can recreate password file by using orapwd utility. The location of password file is in ORACLE_HOME/dbs

    C:\>orapwd
    Usage: orapwd file= password= entries=

    where
    file - name of password file (mand),
    password - password for SYS and INTERNAL (mand),
    entries - maximum number of distinct DBA and OPERs (opt),
    There are no spaces around the equal-to (=) character.


    The other thing is what is try setting REMOTE_LOGIN_PASSWORDFILE = NONE
    in your init.ora parameter file.
