hello everyone
i would like to ask a question

A database administrator has used to connect to oracle database on unix
operating system by using the following:

$ sqlplus sys/sysPass1@orcl as sysdba

What are the big mistakes in the previous method to connect?
What do you suggest to avoid such mistakes?


thanks

Allowing "as sysdba" access across the network.

Welcome to the forum. Please read our OraFAQ Forum Guide and How to use [code] tags and make your code easier to read

Why do you think there are any mistakes in the example you have given?

Hi,
why REMOTE_LOGIN_PASSWORDFILE=NONE ? let it be REMOTE_LOGIN_PASSWORDFILE=EXCLUSIVE,so that the particular user can access the database?
Thanks & Regards,
Rajagopal S

REMOTE_LOGIN_PASSWORDFILE is meaningful ONLY for SYSOPER and SYSDBA connections.
Putting it to NONE forbid any remote connection of these kinds which is a good practice for security.
