I installed oracle 11g on my PC for a class, when trying to shutdown using the EM I keep getting insufficient privileges for my host credential.

I found the forum below that shows a similar problem.  It's a bit dated but may still be relevant.


On the Enterprise Manager login, was there an option to connect as SYSDBA?  According to the forum above, you cannot shutdown the database unless you are connected as SYSDBA.

As this is for a class, I suggest you have a look at the Oracle supplied pre-built VM's - they contain a database, developer tools, EM etc. You just have to install Oracle Virtual Box and get the VM you need:


I can recommend the first one, Database App Development VM
