RE: Connect as SYSDBA - FIXED!

Turned out to be a misleading error message.  The error said
"insufficient permissions".  It turned out a batch script on MS2000 was
trying to run SQLPLUS and write to a file.  The file was previously
opened for update by another program and was still being held by the
program.  I killed the other program and the error went away.

Thanks!
Ron

Ron,

Specifically, what error do you get?  What Oracle version?  What =3D
platform?

I have a batch script that has been running for several months but all
of a sudden failed this weekend. For some reason I can no longer do a
sqlplus "system/password as sysdba".  I don't know that anyone has
changed anything.

Any idea why this would quit working?

Thanks!
Ron Smith
