We use sudo for all privileged access - no problems. We don't use DB control. We use Grid Control - no issues. -- Ron Reidy Lead DBA Array BioPharma, Inc. ________________________________ From: oracle-l-bounce@xxxxxxxxxxxxx [mailto:oracle-l-bounce@xxxxxxxxxxxxx] On Behalf Of goran bogdanovic Sent: Thursday, September 07, 2006 5:29 AM To: oracle-l Subject: logging as oracle using sudo Hi all, The unix administrators at client site require to use unix sudo to log in as oracle software owner. They are currently at 9i and plan to migrate to 10g. Does anyone have some experience (good/bad) regarding administering database 10g logging in as oracle owner using sudo? I have found some notes on Metalink that there are problems working with Grid Control and DB Control. Thanks in advance.
