That should be all.

Create the password file with the orapwd utility as the Oracle software installation owner.

Password file must be called:

Windows: $ORACLE_HOME\database\PWD<instance_name>.ora

Linux/Unix: $ORACLE_HOME/dbs/orapw<instance_name>

I tried to grant a user sysbda privs and got the:

ORA-01994: GRANT failed: password file missing or disabled I understand that I have to create a passwordfile for the instance. But is that all I have to do?

Then do I issue the grant the same way?
