Hello,

When I attempt to connect to the oracle DB on virtualbox, I get the an "invalid username/password" error. The default username/password should be oracle/oracle.


Thank you for your help.

    Please verify that: 

    • SID is correct.
    • Username is correct.
    • Use SQLPlus and test the username and password for this database. 
    • Re-enter the password on the connector page.

    There are a few reasons that you can get this error:

    • Your username or password is actually incorrect
    • The database configuration is not correct (tnanames.ora, $ORACLE_SID parameter)

    If you are able to connect as SYS then use

    Try ALTER SYSTEM SET SEC_CASE_SENSITIVE_LOGON = FALSE
    

    following SQL should show the PASSWORD_VERSIONS for a user.

    select USERNAME,ACCOUNT_STATUS,PASSWORD_VERSIONS from dba_users;
