Cannot connect to 10g instance from 11g client (ORA-12638)
Nov 5, 2012 4:02 PM
I don't know why I have problems when I connect from a 11g client to a 10g server. I get the error ORA-12638.
However, it works fine doing the same with a 10g client.
Can anybody tell me how to avoid this problem without having to install the 10g client ?
Thanks in advance.

in response to
To understand the problem, I advice you to enable tracing and have a look at it.
As you may know, ORA-12638 is the problem with the authentication service.
It was just unable to get your credentials.
