Password for "connect internal" on Oracle8.0.5

Dear Everybody,

Actualy, I've installed the Oracle8.0.5 for ITO, following the Installation Guide.
I Completed the Installation of Oracle and ITO. When I start "opcconfig" to configure the ITO and Oracle. One serious problem comes out.
When I start the Oracle : svrmgrl > connect internal, I was required to type the Password.
e.g
***************************
$ svrmgrl
SVRMGRL > connect internal
SVRMGRL > password :
**************************
Even if I've tried every password related on the system, nothing worked out.

Could you anyone help me how to solve it?

Are you the oracle user when you connect to the database? If so, is there some default passwd that you are expected to use and change?

Re: Password for "connect internal" on Oracle8.0.5

Are you a member of the unix group DBA or the group given these privileges during install (the default group of the oracle account) or the oracle user?
else
you might have password file authentication:
(Check REMOTE_LOGIN_PASSWORDFILE parameter; should be NONE if not)
During database creation; did you supply a password for the unix group to which you assigned DBA privileges? This enables passwd authentication of a SYSDBA connection. ie you have to be a member of the DBA group AND supply the password to connect as SYSDBA.
This password can be altered using the orapwd utility.

So I belive this is the passwd you have to use to connect.

Hi Sungwun
Check to se if you have the environment variable "TWO_TASK" set.
If this is set, unset it.
TWO_TASK is used to connect via sql-net, but that is not the case.
I have had this problem before.

Re: Password for "connect internal" on Oracle8.0.5

In order to connect internal w/o supplying a password, you must be logged into the system as oracle.
What anybody thinks of me is none of my business.

Re: Password for "connect internal" on Oracle8.0.5

This will not require a password if you log into the oracle home directory.
Try using following:
typeset -x ORACLE_SID=sid
svrmgrl
connect internal
If you are root do su -c ORACLE_UID

Re: Password for "connect internal" on Oracle8.0.5

connect internal will not ask for a password if you are logged in to unix as a user who is a member of the group 'dba'.

'operating system authentication' is not required (that is a different story)
