I am getting connection error only when connecting thru SQLPlus. I could connect the user using toad no issues at all. but while connecting using sqlplus i get tbe below error
SQL> conn firstname.lastname@example.org
Enter password: ********
ORA-12638: Credential retrieval failed
In the sqlnet.ora I have SQLNET.AUTHENTICATION_SERVICES = (NONE)
Can someone pls tell me why would sqlplus giving connection error?
The database is installed in unix server. I am using my local machine and
oracle client is installed on my machine.
my system is windows xp. Oracle server is unix. Oracle version is 10g
I can connect to the schema using Toad without any problem. But sqlplus is giving
this strange issues which i never had in the past

I can do tnsping and its brings back the DBname and all other credentials.
I can call sqlplus from the command prompt (cmd) and it connects.
but not with sqlplusw.
note, i copied the tnsnames which is used in toad(toad also use the same location network\admin\tnsnames.ora) but still issues..

Please check the sqlnet.ora file. Change the following entry and try, this will work.
Original Entry - SQLNET.AUTHENTICATION_SERVICES= (NTS)
Modified Entry - SQLNET.AUTHENTICATION_SERVICES= (NONE)
restart DB and test.
