Usermanagement on HP-UX and Oracle

Usermanagement on HP-UX and Oracle

Does anyone know of an application to manage users on HP-UX (10.20/11.0) and Oracle (7.3.x/8.x.x), besides ControlSA (BMC)?
Or, better even, how to use Windows Active Directory to do the job?

Re: Usermanagement on HP-UX and Oracle

SAM doesn't manage Oracle users....

Re: Usermanagement on HP-UX and Oracle

Hi!
If what you're looking for is a graphical interface for Oracle, there is Enterprise Manager for example. For HP-UX there is SAM.
Or else, you can always create users by command line.
good luck.

Re: Usermanagement on HP-UX and Oracle

I'm sure where you are coming from on the question either. By 'manage users' do you mean manage remote authenication so that Windows clients can log in as sysdba and sysoper? If so, check out the orawpd utility. It sets up the authenication file. Also, don't forget to set up remote authenication in your pfile.

There was also a gotcha in the remote authenication. The utility implies that you can use any name for the authentication file, but only the default name will work.

I hope I didn't miss your question by too much.
-Good Luck

Re: Usermanagement on HP-UX and Oracle

Sorry, I was not clear on the purpose.
We want 'simple' administrators to be able to create en manage users on unix and Oracle (assign profiles, applications, etc..) with as little effort as possible.
At present we have an application for this purpose (ERM, which also manages our WindowsNT users) but it is End Of Life and no longer supported.
TIA
