ORA-01031: insufficient privileges

ORA-01031: insufficient privileges

11.31 hpux. Trying to connect to the database as sysdba, getting this authentication error. (ORA-01031: insufficient privileges) Below are all the relevant files and environmental variables. It looks like I have all the permissions yet obviously something is going wrong.  The permissions look OK in $ORACLE_HOME.


sqlplus "/ as sysdba"



# oracle is in both groups, sidpers and dba.


(#/home/oracle-> grep oracle /etc/passwd /etc/group


(#/home/oracle)-> echo $ORACLE_SID; echo $ORACLE_HOME
