this may be a SELinux error if you are on Linux...try disabling it and see if that works.  If you aren't on linux...what operating system are you using?

ok, stay logged in as root(or re log in as root) and re run these two commands.
setenforce 0

getenforce
 

Open in new window


if getenforce reports Permissive or disabled at that time, then try logging into SQL plus again.  If gentforce still reports enforcing then post back here with your exact version of linux.
