OS : Windows XP


Not Able to connect to database with "SYS AS SYSDBA" user



ORCL@TAJ>conn sys as sysdba
Enter password:
ORA-01017: invalid username/password; logon denied

AND
ORCL@TAJ>conn sys as sysdba
Enter password:
ERROR:
ORA-01031: insufficient privileges

AND
ORCL@TAJ>conn / as sysdba
ERROR:
ORA-01031: insufficient privileges

Suggestion:

RECREATE PASSWORD FILE

ENTRIES=5 FORCE=Y --- When Passwordfile already exists
