    creating user

    Hello,
    after loging on as sys (I also tried with system)
    and trying to create a new user with the same configuration as the user sys using the "create like..." function of the "Entrprise Manager Console" of 9i,

    I get the error ORA 990 Missing or invalid privileg

    anyone knows which privilegs are meant? I also dont know if they are missing or invalid :(

    Just to clarify, are you trying to create a duplicate SYS user?

    Yes thatīs the idea

    and using the "create like..." function of the "Entrprise Manager Console" of 9i you get a mask where you only have to insert the user name and its password. The configuration of the new user is (I didn't look privileg after privileg to check) the same as for sys

    Why do you need a duplicate of the SYS user? IMHO a better approach would be to create an administrator account and grant only required privileges to that account.

    If you create users with excessive privileges you will end up with a security nightmare.

    If SYS privileges are required to perform a task, use the SYS user.

    Of course there may be a particular reason you are attempting to do this.
