Re: sys lost sysdba priv?

Paul Drake



If this is a multi-homed box, what orapwd.exe is first in your path?
If you check the scripts that dbca creates, it uses full paths when
executing binaries so as to remove possible PATH issues.

What is the value of ORACLE_SID in the command shell?
What credentials is the OracleService%ORACLE_SID% set to?

You might want to stop and restart the service after creating the password file.
