Host Credentials to perform backups via Oracle Enterprise Manager

I keep getting an error saying wrong password for user when I know the local admin account can access the database...any ideas on this?

Thx

When you work with Oracle Enterprise Manager you can use SYS account.
It is Enterprise Manager ,  M A N A G E R  and only user with SYSDBA role can work with it.

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.

You possibly do not point the correct OS user.
Make difference between Oracle and Os users.
They are different.

Still getting this error

      
The job submission has failed for the following reason

Can you make a domain or other local admin a SYSDBA?

Thx

This seems to be a bug.
Oracle Enterprise manager is not the tool to do backups.
RMAN is one of the tools, but needs training and knowledge.
Another wau to back up is manually to backup the DB.
OEM brings many troubles wne used for complex tasks.

I think I found the issue....I am logging into oracle with an account I created; not a windows domain or server account.  I am receiving an error because this Oracle Account does not exist at SYSMAN.MGMT_USER.

Troubleshooting now

OK...the account has the sysdba role; do I need to log in with another account?  When I do login, the username, pw and as sysdba are selected.
