Unanswered: How to validate Preferred Credentials for Node...
I am studying in a window XP plateforme with Oracle9i.
My problem :
1) I log into enterprise manager as "sysman"
2) I log into my database with the user "sys"
3) => Backup Management => Backup
4) I alway receive a message which tell me that the Preferred Credential for node "localhost" are either not set or are invalid. And farter I have the procedure to correct it.....
The problem is that this procedure is not explicit.... And I can't find any help to explain to me what I need to do.....
Preferred Credentials in this context will be the Admin login onto the
WinXP machine itself ie: your user name & password for the machine
login ( ie: localhost).
You need to go into Enterprise Manager, Configuration menu and you'll see
the Edit Preferred Credentials for your machine login ie: machine node.
Also ensure that the preferred credentials for the database are there
ie: database account and password.
The reason you need this info is that when the backup schedule kicks
in it will initiate a new login onto the machine, it will then create a
database login session. Without you storing this information somewhere
for the scheduler to grab you won't get very far .....
