Oracle Connections via Javelin fail with "ORA-01017: Invalid Username/password." when the credentials are known to be good and work via other components (Datamaker, Portal, SQL Developer, SQLPlus, etc).
Performing a Network sniffer trace would show that the password sent to Oracle is blank, empty or null:
This only happens when FIPS is enabled on the system running Javelin.
This is a known issue with the Oracle ODP.Net (Oracle Data Provider for .NET) components. See
Oracle Doc ID 1937500.1
Oracle Bug 17322941
for additional information.
To work around this problem, disable FIPS in the registry by setting the "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Lsa\FipsAlgorithmPolicy\Enabled" value to "0".
