    This entry forces the external users to use the domain names in login. After enabling this entry in your server. We can create an external user as follows.

    create user “OPS$NTDOMAINusername” identified externally;

    Means if you are login as scott/tiger it becoming as your_domainscott/tiger.

    This entry will prevent OS account spoofing.

    In the Unix box, we can export the same parameter as an environment variable or add the same as a variable in .profile or .bash_profile.

    Sometimes we can get the following error due to mismatch domain name login as an external user.

    ORA-01017: invalid username/password; login denied

    Thanks and regards,
