thx a lot
I have exactly the same problem, same type of installation, same error of login credentials (but what's simpler than typing sys with password admin). Same problem occurs when launching she SQL line console (insufficient credentials). A watch lsof -i command shows oralistener on port 1521 (default value). What's going wrong here ?
Oh yes, what's strange : trying to connect with another profile (the well known "hr"), I do get the message that hr's account is locked (which is normal), but does this mean that the login credentials really don't match (?!?!?). Or is their another Linux feature (rights on file) that block access ?
