Hi,

I have just uninstalled v1.3 and am trying a fresh installation on 1.4 but can't get beyond the first screen; it is not validated the connection details correctly. No matter what I enter it just says "Invalid username/password".

I'm sure I had this before when installing 1.3 but it has been a few months since we last looked at FS and so can't remember what I did to get past this issue.

Thanks,

Craig.

Hi Craig,

It seems like the problem is related with the password of your SYS user. What's your DB and java version? Do you have any nonASCII or any punctuation character in your SYS password? If your db version is 11g, please remember to check lowercase/uppercase characters in your password.

Regards,
Ibrahim

There are no special characters in the password.

The DB in this case is 11.2.0.2.0, Java is 6.7.

This is the same instance on which 1.3 was installed.

Thanks,

Craig.

Quick question, does the install connect as SYS using the "as sysdba" option?

(12 Aug '13, 08:16) Craig

Yes, it does so. If it fails to connect as SYS using the "as sysdba" option, the error you have mentioned occurs.

Strangely I got it working by logging in to the DB via SQL*Plus as SYS and changing the password and then changing it back again. Not sure why this would have fixed it but it did.

Thanks,

Craig.

Hi Craig,

I'm glad that your problem is solved. You can connect to SYS as sysdba using SQL*Plus from the database machine even the password is incorrect, therefore I guess your SYS password was initially incorrect.

Ibrahim
