Hello All,

We are getting below error while running backup from BRTools:

BR0301E SQL error -1017 at location BrDbConnect-3, SQL statement: 'CONNECT SYSTEM/*********' ORA-01017: invalid username/password; logon denied BR0310E Connect to database instance <SID> failed

We had server issue, and we had restore backup in order to come up system. After system restore, we are getting this error.

We checked password of SYSTEM and we are able to connect oracle, but BRTools is giving above error.

We also changed password and tried with new pwd, but same result.

please suggest.

Hello Prithviraj,

Thank you for your response. We had checked this Note, how ever, it could not help us much. :)

However, we identified issue was with /etc/groups file. required group authorization was missing and due to this, it was unable to recognize password for SYSTEM user although credentials were correct.

We took reference of QTY system file, made necessary changes in system and issue got resolved.
