    Insufficient Privileges.

    I have this pb on my oracle 9i database: It returns the ora-01301 error when I try to connect to it. I checked the remote_login_passwordfile parameter and it is set to true. I also tried and add the remote_os_authentication and set it to true but my system didn't recognize it.

    Here's the actual error message and the way I tried and connect:
    Microsoft Windows [version 5.2.3790]

    C:\Documents and Settings\Ousmanou>set oracle_sid=prod

    C:\Documents and Settings\Ousmanou>sqlplus /nolog

    SQL> conn / as sysdba
    ORA-01031: insufficient privileges


    I compared the sqlnet.ora of that installation with the sqlnet.ora of another installation where the conn / as sysdba works fine and below is the difference I noticed.

    The one working had the following lines:


    # This file is actually generated by netca. But if customers choose to
    # install "Software Only", this file wont exist and without the native
    # authentication, they will not be able to connect to the database on NT.

    Indeed, while doing the first installation I had chosen the "Software only" option. I made a copy-paste of that line hoping that it might work... it didn't. Later on, using net configuration assistant, after deleting the "corrupted" sqlnet.ora file, I configured the naming methods resolution and the new sqlnet.ora that was generated looked like the following :

    # SQLNET.ORA Network Configuration File: D:\oracle\ora92\network\admin\sqlnet.ora
    # Generated by Oracle configuration tools.

    NAMES.DEFAULT_DOMAIN = afogic.local



    But when I tried to connect it yielded the same error message. Any tips?

    P.S. I should mention that when I connect using the following method "sys/prod@prod as sysdba" it works. And I run my database on Windows.

    The Windows account you are using probably wasn't added to ORA_DBA group.
