EM12c Privileged Host Credential not working

Currently Being Moderated
Having trouble setting up the privileged host credential.

This is using Oracle Cloud 12c (12.1.0.2), target host is RedHat 5

My steps:
Create a named credential with target type host, credntial type host credentials, applied to specific host target
Username and password of a user (ngilbert) with sudo rights on the target, set run privilege to Sudo, with Run as = root
When I hit "Test and Save" I get Authentication Failure, check credential properties.

Then went to Security->Privilege Delgation, for the target host hit Edit
For the sudo command /usr/bin/sudo -u %RUNAS% %COMMAND%
went to target host, logging in with the username and password supplied to the credential, ran '/usr/bin/sudo -u root ls -la', was prompted for password and supplied the password I specified for the credential, command completed successfully.

In the gcagent.log log on the target I see:
2013-01-28 10:48:02,523 [1935:F2C3CAF7:HTTP Listener-1935 - /emd/main/ (DispatchRequests OMS@3485@grid.csusm.edu=>[135939889320001])] INFO - >>> Dispatching request: PerformOperationRequest (perl -e exit 0 owner=ngilbert jobId=OMS@3485@grid.csusm.edu=>[135939889320001]) <<<

oracle.sysman.emSDK.agent.client.exception.PerformOperationException: ERROR: Invalid username and/or password LOG: Local Authentication Failed...Attempt PAM authentication...PAM failed with error: Authentication failure

I have triple checked the password, so I'm not sure what I'm missing
