Please paste the orapwd command you used for creating the password file ?
Does your password file ends with .ora or some other extension? If so,
create password file without any .xxx names .(it needs to be simply dbname
like orapwdbname and not orapwddbname.ora or some others)

We manually created or migrated existing databases in these new
on Solaris 11 and upgraded them to 12C. We cannot get the sys account to
work properly. We are getting invalid userid/password. We have a password
file, and REMOTE_LOGIN_PASSWORDFILE is set to exclusive. We have tried
mixed case, lower case, uppercase. Other accounts other than sys can
connect using userid/password@12cdatabase. sys@12cdatabase as sysdba
does not work. Any ideas? We have a lot of stumped dba's here. We did
find a note relating that deep packet inspection might cause this. We do
have a ticket in but haven't heard anything back. We're on a very tight
deadline to get all these systems working.
