Trouble setting Preferred Credentials on Windows Vista for Oracle EM

Hi, and thanks in advnace,

I'm trying to set the preferred credentials in Oracle 10g EM  for automated management tasks that are desired, and they simply won't take. A Windows error is generated that reads "Oracle Enterprise Manager executable stopped working and was closed".  The usernames and passwords are for administrator users on the machine, both for the Normal Username and the Privileged Username.  I found what I think might be the log file accompanying the application, and have attached it.  My environment is VIsta Business.  

  Any ideas how to successfully set these values or ideas as to why it fails?

Thanks!

Mark

The user you are using for host credentials should have an OS right "log on as a batch job". The Management Agent logs onto the OS each time it is requested to run a job and without the above right it fails to connect.

The following is an example on Windows 2000:-

1. Go to control panel/administrative tools
a. click on "local security policy"
b. click on "local policies"
c. click on "user rights assignments"
d. double click on "log on as a batch job"
e. click on "add" and add the user that was entered in the "normal username" or "privileged username" section of the EM Console.

Hi schwertner.  I had done this, I also needed to specify the OS user's domain too.  So the OS used needed to be stated as domain\userid.  Works like a dream now.

Thanks.
