Invalid  host credentials

OEM 10g,

Enterprise Linux 5.5.

I have my host credentials configured as Preferred Credentials through the Preferences menu. It retains the correct value through logout/login as well as through the console restart.

When I try to schedule my backup and click on the Schedule Customized Backup, it gives me:

"Error - Connection to host as user oracle failed: ERROR: Wrong password for user"

when I update the value for Host Credentials password on the Schedule Backup page (with or without Save as Preferred Credential checked), the test passes fine and a test batch jobs finishes fine as well. However, if I need to schedule a recurrent Level 1 backup job, it fails with the invalid password error. And the password value is not retained.

I had a suspicion that this might be related to some OS privileges.
I ran but it didn't help.

Any suggestions?

Are the entries for host credentials from the Preferences menu and Schedule Backup screen stored in different places?
