When connecting to SQL*Plus using Oracle password authentication and the default database (i.e. no service name specified at the command line, e.g. sqlplus test/<password>) a local external job fails.
However, when connecting using a service name (e.g. sqlpus test/<password>@XXX) the same local external job succeeds.

The errors received are:

where 'oracle' is the only member of group 'oinstall'.
