Hi All

I am writing a shell script to connect directly to sys user as a dba. However I cannot write something 'sqlplus sys as sysdba' as it gives me the error (I am on 9i with RH 7.2) it says the syntax is not correct. I tried even sqlplus / nolog but it also gives error for that. What can I do as I want to connect as sysdba even when database is down using shell script.
