    sqlplus ORA-01031 Insufficeint privileges

    I am trying to start sqlplus on Oracle 10gR2 (on Sun server). Keep getting error ORA-01031 Insufficient privileges. Here's how I am executing this from the start as oracle user:

    login as: bill
    Using keyboard-interactive authentication.
    Password:
    Last login: Tue Oct 24 13:47:48 2006 from 192.168.3.38
    Welcome to the Sun Fire-V240 Server "Jacob"!
    -bash-3.00$ su oracle
    Password:
    $ cd /export/ORACLE_HOME/bin
    $ sqlplus /nolog

    SQL*Plus: Release 10.2.0.1.0 - Production on Tue Oct 24 13:54:11 2006

    SQL> connect sys as sysdba
    Enter password:
    ERROR:
    ORA-01031: insufficient privileges

    SQL> connect oracle/oracle as sysdba
    ERROR:
    ORA-01031: insufficient privileges

    SQL>

    I've tried several combinations of login attempts but keep getting the same error. I've also referenced others' posts here at this site but don't see any solution that I can extract . Any ideas from anyone who has experienced this problem, I'd appreciate some help.

    use su - oracle for one

    also make sure that oracle is in the dba group (or whichever group was specified during install)
