Hi there,

I'm using Oracle 9i, Solaris 10.
I entered Oracle:

sqlplus /nolog;

SQL> conn /as sysdba;
Connected.
SQL>show user;
USER is "SYS"
SQL>

And I just want to know what's my account.
SYS user had password.

I don't understand why it is not asking sys user's password.

Quote:
An administrative account is a user that is granted SYSOPER or SYSDBA privileges.
Oracle DBAs and operators typically use administrative accounts to manage the database and database instance.

SYSDBA and SYSOPER allow access to a database instance even if it is not running.
Control of these privileges is managed outside of the database via password files
and special operating system groups (dba on Unix/Linux and ORA_DBA on Windows).
External password files are created with the orapwd utility.
