Password authentication (sqlplus <user>/<password>@<TNS alias>) works fine from client machine.
The same <user>, <password>, <TNS alias> credentials were stored in the Secure External Password Store Wallet file.
But the connection using External Password Store Wallet (sqlplus /@<TNS alias>) errors out every time with ‘ORA-12534: TNS:operation not supported’

Upon research, it was found that the OS user setup was different and was not having same permission and group as was needed.
Once corrected, this worked fine.
Check the /etc/passwd file for the OS user details and make sure the user is setup correctly.
Also check the /etc/group file for the user group details.
You will also need to check your environment variables if that is set correctly, if not explicitly set the correct values and then try to connect again.
