I am using Linux with my Oracle database. I was working on it and while I wanted to back up my files, when I tried selecting something in the backup selection list, I got this error message: “Authentication failed on connection to the server. Make sure that the user account has the appropriate permissions and that the password was typed correctly”. More details of the error message are shown in the attached screenshot below. Please help me resolve my problem.

Logon Account Selection Error on Oracle Database

The error that you are getting while using the oracle database; "Authentication failed on connection to server. Make sure that the user account has the appropriate permissions and that the password was typed correctly", usually occurs when you try to select Oracle instance for backup.

To fix it, you will need to make sure that path to the "bin" folder of Oracle instance has been set to the first value in the "Path" variable of the Environment variables that are being used by the Oracle Server. You will need to use the sample directory paths below to get to the bin folder:
>>     X:oracleora92bin, or  X:oracleproduct10.2.0db_1bin
