I am working with 10g database .
I have set the remote_login_passwordfile parameter to exclusive


SQL> select * from v$pwfile_users;

USERNAME                       SYSDB SYSOP
------------------------------ ----- -----
SYS                            TRUE  TRUE

SQL> show parameter pass

NAME                                 TYPE        VALUE
------------------------------------ ----------- ------------------------------
remote_login_passwordfile            string      EXCLUSIVE




I tried connecting as sysdba and I was able to connect .

sqlplus '/as sysdba'

When i was trying to connect as sys with different random passwords specified i was able to connect too.

Though I didn't give sysdba permissions to other users they were also able to connect as sysdba .

Let me know what went wrong ?

You are in the OS dba group.
You can give what you want for username and password, Oracle does not care and connect you as sysdba.

OS Authentication has the priority over password file authentication.
