    Unanswered: SYS login from server - insufficient privileges

    Hi all,
    I have a problem with my Oracle Server (10g - under Red Hat Linux.
    When logged into the server as the Oracle user, I can log in using the commands:

    "sqlplus / as sysdba"

    "sqlplus /nolog"
    SQL> conn / as sysdba;

    "sqlplus /nolog"
    SQL> conn sys/password@dbname as sysdba;

    For any of these cases, I am able to connect and do not receive and error.

    When I modify the login to include the entry from the tnsnames file and attempt to log in using the sys user and password directly from the command prompt:

    "sqlplus sys/password@dbname as sysdba"

    I receive an insufficient privileges message. ORA-01031

    I seem to remember something about logging in explicitly as the SYS user, but can't find it in my books.
    Any help would be appreciated.

    if you include the sid in the connect string, you are in effect logging in over TNS which you need to be configured for

    have you TNS in your connect in sqlnet.ora?
