After cloning a database some users cannot connect to the database anymore from within SQLPLUS:


SQL> conn user1/test$bb
ORA-01017: invalid username/password; logon denied

Warning: You are no longer connected to ORACLE.

When connecting directly from the OS session everything is working as expected:

[oracle@ro-rac3 kit]$ sqlplus user1/test$bb
