Enterprise Linux 5.5.
I have my host credentials configured as Preferred Credentials through the Preferences menu. It retains the correct value through logout/login as well as through the console restart.
When I try to schedule my backup and click on the Schedule Customized Backup, it gives me:
"Error - Connection to host as user oracle failed: ERROR: Wrong password for user"
when I update the value for Host Credentials password on the Schedule Backup page (with or without Save as Preferred Credential checked), the test passes fine and a test batch jobs finishes fine as well. However, if I need to schedule a recurrent Level 1 backup job, it fails with the invalid password error. And the password value is not retained.
I had a suspicion that this might be related to some OS privileges.
I ran root.sh but it didn't help.
Are the entries for host credentials from the Preferences menu and Schedule Backup screen stored in different places?
Here's the 127.0.0.1 entry from the hosts file
127.0.0.1 server-name server-name.client-name.local server-name.another-clients-alias-name.local localhost.localdomain localhost
The other 3 entries in the file are:
::1 and two Weblogic servers.
