RE: dropping a database link

Quoting from the Distributed Database Systems Manual (8.1.6) "You can drop a database link just as you can drop a table or view. If the link is private, then it must be in your schema."

So yes, a dba cannot drop database links owned by other users unless you use your power (for good) to switch to the other schema.

drop database link scott.mylink; will only work if the link name is scott.mylink, not if it is named mylink and owned by scott. If scott owns
the link (private link), scott must drop the link. ('.' is a valid character
in a database link name. Schema's cannot be specified).
