    Unable to login as sys user

      Hi,

      While trying to login at one of our production DB environment as sysdba (OS user: oracle), I am encountering this:

      bash-3.00$ sqlplus / as sysdba

      SQL*Plus: Release 10.2.0.3.0 - Production on Mon Nov 15 11:55:32 2010

      Copyright (c) 1982, 2006, Oracle. All Rights Reserved.

      ERROR:
      ORA-01031: insufficient privileges

      I have recreated the password file but till then the same error is encountered. Presently DB is shutdown.

      Thanks in advance for sparing your valuable time.

      DB: 10.2.0.3 64 bit
      Platform: Unix

      Regards,
      Joy
