    Unanswered: The specified password file name is invalid. (ORA-01191)

    I have searched this forum (using the error number and the words Password File). I have also search

    Here is my situation:
    I am running MS Windows 2000 with Oracle 8.1.7. When I restart the server, Oracle does not start up automatically. When I restart the server manually (from DBA studio), I get an Oracle pop-up that indicates error ORA-01991 The specified password file name is invalid.

    I have verified that the password file is correct and is in its proper location. To get the instance started, all I have to do is check the Open radio button (in DBA studio) and re-apply.

    Does anyone know what I need to do to correct this error?


    Have you hugged your backup today?

    did you try dropping and recreating the file using orapwd utility?
