Hi

Im running Oracle 10g on live and dev.

On dev:
I created the database
Created a user 'x'
Granted all privileges to 'x'

When I logged in as the user 'x' and tried to run 'show parameter db_name' it gave me an error saying 'Table or view does not exist'. However, running the command as sysdba gave the correct value for db_name.

I then did a full export from live to dev, and after the import on dev i am able to see the db_name while logged in as 'x'.

My questions are: What changed during the export to allow me to see the paramters? Can i set it manually?

Thanks
smora

Hi,

On dev user "X" don't have "dba" or "select any dictionary" privs.
that is why user "X" cann't able to see "db_name" parameters.
if you want to see dbname use below query
select * from global_name;


When your import your "X" user from PRODUCTION then that time USER "X" having sufficient privs to see "db_name" parameter.


regards
Taj

I granted all privileges to user 'x' when i created it, using:

grant all privileges to x

Why would that not grant the 'select any dictionary' privilege to x?

Hi,
'select any dictionary'

You should grant manually or grant DBA privs.
"ALL" privs is object level privs.
and "select any dictionary" is system privs.

SQL> create user od identified by od;

User created.

SQL> grant all privileges to od;

Grant succeeded.

SQL> conn od/od
Connected.
SQL> select privilege
  2  from session_privs
  3  where privilege = 'SELECT ANY DICTIONARY';

no rows selected
