Whats wrong with those commands??? If you read the trade magazines and all the ads Oracle owns everything and is trying to read, write, and execute everything... ROR mm

>>> kirti.deshpande_at_verizon.com 05/09/01 04:16PM >>> We had one DBA who did chown -R oracle * followed by chmod -R u+x,g+x * while at / as root !!
That pissed of everyone not just the SAs. It took several days (almost a rebuilt of the server) to recover. Who to blame? The supid prompt for not having a # and id when su-ed to root.
