ORA-01017: invalid username/password; logon denied

Hi guys. I've been having the same problem for the last few days. The application and DB (Oracle) are located on different servers, SAP gateway is installed on the server with the database. When I try to update DB13 statistics it comes up with the following log:

I don't understand why the service can't log into the database. Any suggestions?
