Default Trouble Opening an Oracle Connection

    Dim inst As New OracleConnectionStringBuilder()
    With inst
        .DataSource = "DIS"
        .UserID = "UidUidUid"
        .Password = "PwPwPw"
        .IntegratedSecurity = True
        .PersistSecurityInfo = True
    End With

    Using cn As New OracleConnection(inst.ConnectionString)
            ' Do Stuff . . .
        Catch ex As Exception
            Debug.WriteLine("Error " & ex.Message)
        End Try
        generates A 1st chance exception of type 'OracleClient.OracleException' occurred in OracleClient.dll
Error ORA-01017: invalid username/password; logon denied
Yet using CONNECT UidUidUid/PwPwPw@DIS works in SQL*Plus (Oracle’s tool for communicating directly with Oracle through a text interface; looks like notepad).

What am I missing?
