    imp '/as sysdba'

    To become sysdba in sqlplus I can simply enter the command:
    # sqlplus '/as sysdba'
    (as the system user oracle... with ORACLE_HOME and ORACLE_SID set..)

    So far so good...But now I want to import my dump with imp...
    Can I connect as sysdba without knowing the password like the syntax
    with sqlplus..

    # imp '/as sysdba'
    (as the system user oracle... with ORACLE_HOME and ORACLE_SID set..)

    does not work..

    You should import as user SYSTEM. If you do not know the password for SYSTEM. Login as sqlplus / as sysdba and change the password for SYSTEM.

    Found a workaround with external identification....that might be the solution I will use....

    But I don't really want to create a user for this and the question
    is if this user that have an external identification can be sysdba?

    Another question is if I can start an import thru sqlplus?
    # sqlplus '/as sysdba'
    SQL>

    I can mention that the reason that I want to be able to connect without passwords is that I am witing shllescripts that will create
    a user, a tablespace, grants and then import data from an export-dump...
    I don't want the password as clear text in my scripts...

    Well, that's another workaround...

    But the problem is that I don't want to interfer with the DBA on the server and reset his "system-user"-password...

    When running my scripts I am root.. and then su's to the unixuser oracle...which is able to run sqlplus without being prompted for passwords..
    sqlplus '/as sysdba'

    This lets me execute sqripts for creating user, tablespace, grants and so on.....
    But not import an export-dump!!...
