Just out of curiousity what is your sqlnet.ora sqlnet.authentication set
to? If it is set to NTS try setting it to NONE or commenting it out and
try it. If it's happening on all of them its got to be a configuration
issue of some kind.

Subject: windows database service not shutting down database on reboot
We have about 10 windows servers, some w2k, some w2003 with 9i and 10g
databases on them. When the server gets rebooted the database services
don't get stopped and the instances crash. They always recover on
startup and we have put a work-around in place but I'm curious about
whether anyone else has experienced this problem. The following message
appears in the oradim.log file when the problem happens:ORA-12638
: Credential retrieval failed
My guess is that a process which the database uses to authenticate
itself has stopped before the oracle service and that is why the
I have opened an sr but they are telling me to recreate the service
using oradim locally, not remotely. I did this but when it didn't work
they told me to apply the latest patchset and do it again. Since this is
happening across different oracle and windows versions I have a feeling
that it has nothing to do with the version.
Has anyone else experienced this?
