I trying to set OPS$ to null.  Is it :
os_authent_prefix=NULL
or
os_authent_prefix=’NULL’
or
os_authent_prefix=””
in the init.ora file?
I have both 9i and 10g databases
Thanks

I guess it should be OS_AUTHENT_PREFIX="OPS$"

It's os_authent_prefix=""

Just FYI: if you are trying to connect with a Windows user authenticated by a domain, you'll have to create users named "domain\user". If you don't change the prefix, you have to create them as "ops$domain\user" :-)
