I have a problem at my current employer. I am used to have oracle account for doing all dba works. At the current employer the old dba doesn't allow me much to have the oracle account for the box in which he has several databases and I just have one test db. He keeps setting the passwd after I'm done with a task. I need to setup new db and do some RMAN related setups. I believe if my AIX-id is in the osdba/osper group at the OS level then I should be able to do what I can with the oracle user. Please correct me if I'm wrong. Any suggestion will be highly appreciated.
