Hi

 

 

Check /etc/groups

 

check id -a

 

 

See if there is what you expect to see in group configuration.

Re: group removed

with -G, it shouldn't remove the dba group from oracle.

 

what does "id oracle" show?  Do  you see both admin and dba group listed?

Dear All sorry to be late

what i said that dba is a secondary group in oracle user and when i did usermod -G admin oracle; it removed all secondary groups for this user

but what i need an answer that oracle user was able to shutdown the database after dba removing but when it try to start the db again it gives error related to insuffiecnt privalge , is this acceptable even dba is a secodary group or there is something else i should check
