can you post the specific command that you entered.

You wrote that you are able to login as "sys,system" etc. but not as sysdba. so what was the command that you used to login as "sys".

Please do mention the OS details and the Oracle version in the next post.

try from sqlplus first and if successful then login from enterprise manager.

you wrote
Quote:

>CONNECT SYS/PASSWORD@TEST
IT IS GETTING CONNECTED


what is the output of the following command in this session
 show user


Are you using Password file authentication to login as sys?
Do you have one or more database on this machine?

can you copy/paste something like this from your session
SQL> conn sys/tarun as sysdba;
Connected.
SQL> show user
USER is "SYS"
SQL> conn system/manager 
Connected.
SQL> show user
USER is "SYSTEM"
