I am running into an odd situation with adding windows domain group to
ORA_DBA group to grant sysdba privileges.
I am getting an
invalid username/password - logon denied error while connecting to an instance in Oracle 12c.
But, if I add my individual windows account to
ORA_DBA group, I am able to login just fine.
I have tried to research for an entire day but haven't had much luck. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Note : The windows domain group is part of the Administrator group on the server.
This is how my
sqlnet.ora file looks like:
SQLNET.AUTHENTICATION_SERVICES = (NTS) SQLNET.INBOUND_CONNECT_TIMEOUT = 120 NAMES.DIRECTORY_PATH =(TNSNAMES, HOSTNAME) NAMES.DEFAULT_DOMAIN = WORLD NAMES.DEFAULT_ZONE = WORLD TRACE_LEVEL_CLIENT = OFF AUTOMATIC_IPC = OFF
