file $ORACLE_HOME
and create the password file as follows.

$orapwd file=$ORACLE_HOME/dbs/orapw$ORACLE_SID password=password entries=5
force=y

2)Now grant sysdba privilege to the users that you need.
Check V$PWFILE_USERS for the entry.
SQL>GRANT SYSDBA to SYSTEM;

3)Check the owner of $ORACLE_HOME/dbs/orapw$ORACLE_SID verify the password
file,

SQL> !ls -l $ORACLE_HOME/dbs/orapw$ORACLE_SID

4)If it is not to dba then change the ownership by
$chown oracle:dba $ORACLE_HOME/dbs/orapw$ORACLE_SID

Also change permission by,
$chmod 4640 $ORACLE_HOME/dbs/orapw$ORACLE_SID
