svrmgrl connect internal password?

I want to startup a Oracle 8.1.7 for HP-UX database. When I issue the "connect internal" command it promts me for a password. It does not accept the database admin password either resulting in an "insufficiant priviledges" message being displayed. Any idea what user name or password I need to use?

Re: svrmgrl connect internal password?

Hi,

Did you login to the Oracle UNIX account (usually created as oracle) before issuing svrmgrl?

The Oracle account usually has the full privileges to execute svrmgrl.

Hope this helps. Regards.

Hi,

use the oracle account which is created during oracle installation and it has all the previledges.

Hi Chamitha Wijesekera

1. Are you trying it as the oracle user , the same should belong to the dba group.

2.If you are trying as an usr with the same dba group , has it been defined in $oraclehome/dbs/password file ?

Connect internal will not ask for password if
the user issuing the svrmgrl command is owner of software(normally oracle) or belong to same group(normally dba).

if you want to connect to internal as nondba user, then do the following

cd $ORACLE_HOME/dbs
orapwd file=orapw password= entries=10

Now you can connect as internal by supplying the password which you set by using orapwd command.

thanks

Hi,

you have to be the oracle owner (typically oracle)
So change to oracle user with:

su - oracle

then start svrmgrl and you shoud connect internal successfully.

Re: svrmgrl connect internal password?

Hi there.
There maybe several points to check :

- oracle binary owner
- oracle binary permissions ( chmod 6751 ..)
- is oracle owner member of group dba ?

- all environment variable set properly ?
