Usually it is possible to connect in svrmgrl as SYS or SYSTEM (or any DBA who has SYSOPER privilege) to do database shutdowns and startups.  You don't have to do that as "connect internal".  Have you tried one of these other accounts?

I am not familiar with AIX.  In Oracle for Windows, there is a password utility (orapwd.exe) that can be used to set or change the password for "internal".  Look for that executable in your Oracle_home\bin directory or check the operating-specific documentation.

There are two ways of doing it

1- First Mathod is to use the Oradim utility. follow these
steps

shutdown the database

remove ur old password file
in my machine it is on <oracle_home>\database\pwdora81.ora'

create a new password file with a password of ur choice with a command like this

c:\> orapwd file='c:\oracle\ora81\database\pwdora81.ora password=oracle entries=2

remember to create the new file in the same directory as the old password file and with the same name


2- Second mathod

if the initialization parameter (init.ora file) remote_login_password_file is 'EXCLUSIVE' go to server
manager , connect as system or sys, change the password of sys (alter user sys identified by sys). The
internal password will be changed automatically.
