Trouble logging on with new instance

I am very new to Oracle and have created a new DB instance on my personal laptop. There are two other instances already created by an archive software package called IXOS. The username and passwords for these two instances were given to me through the documentation.

The problem is that the new instance that I have created didn't prompt me to supply a username and password during creation. The result is that I can not log on to the database, whether I use the server manager or the schema manager. I have tried to use sysman/oem_temp with no success.

You should be able to get in by using either of the following accounts:

   SYS with password of CHANGE_ON_INSTALL
   SYSTEM with password of MANAGER
