    Angry Unanswered: I need help logging on the ISQLPLUS with the '/' sign.


    Currently my company went to a format that requires initial connection with SQLPLUS to use the '/' sign. I like ISQLPLUS better, but I can not seem to use the '/' sign to log into ISQLPLUS. The error ISQLPLUS returns is:

    SP2-0885: Only a valid username or '/' is allowed in the username field

    But I am already using the '/' sign with and without the single quotes. Does anyone have any ideas? Is this even possible to do with ISQLPLUS?

    AFAIK, by using just "/" to invoke SQLPLUS means that OS authentication is being used.
    ISQLPLUS is a web based utility and therefore can NOT use OS authentication.
    It just won't work.
    You can lead some folks to knowledge, but you can not make them think.
    The average person thinks he's above average!
    For most folks, they don't know, what they don't know.
    Good judgement comes from experience. Experience comes from bad judgement.

    Just an add-on to Anacedent's words ... if you want to be able to connect to SQL*Plus using "/", your Oracle user has to be created as "OPS$username".
