Re-install as LOCAL administrator, not domain member!
And do not install enhanced security when you do not use it;
comment out the NTS line in sqlnet.ora

What I found interesting is that a client from another machine to the
same server (with only the domain being different) worked just fine.

I didn't reinstall, but did as you mentioned and removed the NTS line
from sqlnet.ora. This worked just fine. But I still don't understand
what's wrong.


the setting NTS verifies your account against the account database on
the NT domain controller.
There can be numerous variations of incorrect NT setup which will
cause this error.
As Frank stated, install Oracle as *local* administrator, not as
*domain* administrator.
