Solaris 10g executables - perrmissions

        We are setting up 10g and testing upgrades from our 9i databases. One of the strange quirks I have noticed is that the default permissions on the 10g software are a lot tighter than previous versions.

        We have several auto-loader type users with very limited OS privileges, they can no longer execute SQL*Plus and sqlldr, under 10g, but can still access the 9i executables OK. Has anyone else run into this problem on the Solaris platform? Looks like only members of dba group can now access the software, I not going to grant dba just to get access to sqlplus.

        Any pointers, no matter how obvious, appreciated.
