    Username and password are for the database or repository, not the O/S.

    Use that same login and password on the database server; I expect you've typed an incorrect login or password in the dialogue box. Normally the software owner it 'oracle' unless it's on Windows where it is Administrator.

    This is the operating system user who 'owns' the Oracle software installation? You can use these same credentials to login to the database server?

    And the error states 'incorrect username/password" so it may NOT be the password but the username that is incorrect. Is this a Windows server and are you attempting to use a domain user and password to connect?

    You do not provide enough information; we do not know what operating system your database server is running nor if it's on a domain (if running Windows).

    Post the operating system of your database server and a screen shot of the error generated by OEM.

    Dear Zargon,

    We have installed Oracle 10g Std Ed in windows 2003 Server.
    I use to login to the server tru remote desktop connection with username " administrator" and password *****
    Once after the installation i had crrated the flashrecovery. Now the flash recovery area is almost full and OEM gien the alert. I tried to reclaim the flach recovery area. then to reclaim,or to delete obsolete archives and all i tried in OEM and its asking for the OS login credentials, i have given the same administrator username and password which i used initially to create the flash recovery area. Eventhough the login credentials are correct the OEM returns " could not connect to the host" and the password is invalid like that.

    Here the " domain " you asked is different ? or correct me if am wrong with this.
    Am not much experienced with this.

    Thanks & Best Regards,

    This appears to be a situation where this is a domain administrator account, not a local administrator account and in such cases the domain must also be entered in the username field:

    mydomain\administrator

    where mydomain is the domain for the account. Logging in through remote desktop the domain is shown as the third field in the logon window.

    You keep saying the password you provide is correct yet you show no proof of successful connections to this server with that username and password. Post screenshots of you entering the username and password and of a successful connection.

    I don't find a screenshot of an actual login to the Windows server using those credentials thus there is no proof your password is correct. And another question: has any server maintenance/patching been done since you were successful in connecting to this server through OEM?

    Hi,

    These screenshots i have taken from the ie which belongs to the server itself. For that i have logged into the server using the username " administrator " and password " qazwsx" tru remote desktop connection. So i shoud use the same username and password for the backup maintenace, correct me if i am wrong. For that i given the username " TESTDB\administrator" and password same as above.

    Patches to the application has been done while we are having the same issue.
    This issue came up very long back. I have another production server and its working fine and the login credentials for that server is also same. First i will connect to this production server and from that i normally connect to this test server which is having the issue as of now. So is this an issue for this or any other?
    Should i check the oracle home from OEM,how?

    Please dont feel bad if i ask any childish questions :)

    Thanks & best Regards

    Server maintenance may have altered server security policies so that they now differ from your production server. You need to check with your Windows administrator to see what was done and what may have changed in the process.
