dbstart script or systemctl start dbora fails with error ORA-01017 for conn / as sysdba. But sqlplus / as sysdba works.

Applies to:Oracle Database - Enterprise Edition - Version 18.104.22.168 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.
On a new Oracle 22.214.171.124 database, the dbstart script fails to start the database as it returns an ORA-1017 invalid username and password when trying to "connect / as sysdba." This happens when using systemctl start dbora as root user.
But sqlplus / as sysdba works for the same OS user 'oraprod'.
