I want to run the backup-wizard from the OEM console.
The prefered credentials is set so that OEM should login as system/manager as SYSDBA but I only gett an error: ORA-01031: insufficient privileges
If a change from SYSDBA to SYSOPER or normal it connects.

How do I cahange these privileges?

I have looked around and found out that is perhaps has something to do with the orapwd-file generated.

I have remote_login_passwordfile = EXCLUSIVE specified in the initWIND.ora (WIND is the sid)
but where should the orapwd-file be located and how should it be named. Or is it something completely different that is wrong?

If I connect to the database directly from DBA-studio standalone I can connect as SYSDBA..

I'm running Oracle 8i, OEM v2.

I would really appriciate som help..
