Re: [suse-oracle] oracle9 on sles9: problem cannot connect "/ as sysdba"

Hello Magni, hello Mathias,

thanks for your quick answers, but I still cannot connect to "/":

this is id of my oracle user:
uid=59(oracle) gid=54(oinstall) groups=54(oinstall),55(dba)
Magni, you are right: oracle user is not in dba after installation,
so I added him to dba group manually. (this was before writing my first
question).

Adding user oracle to group disk(6) did not help either.
(btw. how can I check afterwards with which admin group I have installed it?)

The permissions of my oracle binary are also correct:
-rwsr-s--x 1 oracle oinstall 48217581 2004-12-13 12:21 oracle

Orarun package is: orarun-1.8-109.5
Oracle installation is: 9.2.0.4 + patchset 9.2.0.5 as described in Arun`s
howto.

Regards

Tilman
