Linked Server Error ORA-01017.

Applies to: SQL Server 2008 R2.

Problem Description.

While trying to query an Oracle linked server via the OPENQUERY function, we received the following error:

OLE DB provider "OraOLEDB.Oracle" for linked server "LinkedServerName" returned message "ORA-01017: invalid username/password; logon denied".

Error: 7303, Severity: 16, State: 1.

Cannot initialize the data source object of OLE DB provider "OraOLEDB.Oracle" for linked server "LinkedServerName"



On the Oracle database server, the password of the remote login account used on the Linked Server to connect to Oracle was changed.


Make a right click on the linked server and select "Properties", then on the "Select a page" panel click on Security and provide the new password for the "Remote login".
