    I've made a shellscript which I run as root...

    Everything works BUT i receive theese 2 error messages
    when running orawpd command to create a passwordfile.

    In the script I su to user oracle and then execute orapwd..

    Scenario one:

    su oracle -c "$ORACLE_HOME/bin/orapwd file=$ORACLE_HOME/dbs/orapwSID password=***** "

    Error message:
    Unable to find error file

    Scenario two:

    su - oracle -c "$ORACLE_HOME/bin/orapwd file=$ORACLE_HOME/dbs/orapwSID password=***** "

    In scenario one: the oracle environment will not be set up properly - the oracle user will inherit the root environment - so variables like ORACLE_HOME will be undefined.

    In the second scenario, your command will be executed properly. The reason you are getting the message, I believe, is that you have a "stty" command in the oracle ".cshrc" file - move this command to the oracle user ".login" file and the error message should go away.

    Hope this helps - let me know the result please!
