    Do you have a different version of Oracle already installed.
    if so the shutdoun the existing Database and the try to install this
    on a different Oracle Home.

    If it is a fresh installation, the Just remove any copies of sqlnet.ora
    and tnsnames.ora and then try to install it again.

    Also check the previlages for your administrator Login in Windows 2000

    Cool

    You mean the local Administrator account, right? Not the domain Administrator. Make sure you are loged locally as Administrator or local user with Administrator or ORA_DBA group.

    If so, you shouldn't have any problems. Can you describe the exact steps you have made? Not so clear from your post..


    Hope that helps,

    // *Cause: The authentication service failed to retrieve the credentials of a
    // user.
    // *Action: Enable tracing to determine the exact error.
