RMAN Job Failure

Environment: on Red Hat Linux ES3
I was checking backups from last night with the following oddity.  The job 
failed with "User Authentication Failed."  Simple right?  The oracle user 
account password changed - not.  The o/s account pw didn't change, the RMAN 
account on the database - password hasn't changed either.  I spoke with my S/A 
and he hasn't changed anything either.  The semi-intelligent agent is still 
running (Since Feb 16th).
I did try to run a one-off job to do a one time get it done now backup through 
the OEM console with no success.  However, I was able to log in to the server 
and run an RMAN script via command line with no problems.
Any thoughts/experiences with this type of problem?
Thank you for your help.
