Aha, so another error..
check if any alaises defined on the machine..
Check this file
Oracle\ Ora81\ Network\ Admin\ Tnsnames.ora and a .world would be appended to it...
See if the env var is local.
Check you sqlnet.log in the log directory of the network folder..
my error stack says this(for instance)...
Fatal NI connect error 12640, connecting to:

The problem was terminal services. I got local access to the box and was able to use the new password from the newly gen'ed password file.
I immediately reset system and sys to something reasonable.
