    database read only

    Hello,
    How Can I make database read only ? Is there any other way to make database read only other than making all the tablespaces read only mode.
    Thanks for your help

    The schema owner has priv of insert/update/delete.
    How ever, for all other user, you can give select priv only.

    Do I need to give "Startup Read only" . If so How do I startup the database if needed to insert or update.
    Thanks,

    Check manuals for STARTUP (SQL*Plus) and ALTER DATABASE OPEN (SQL) commands.

    the definition of a cold backup is with everything shut down.

    Do you mean can you simple copy the datafiles? I wouldnt try that

    If you want to do (proper) cold backup your database won't be neither in read-only nor in read-write mode - it will be closed!

    Except with RMAN where the DB instance must be mounted.
