==> orapwd -h
Usage: orapwd file=<fname> password=<password> entries=<users> force=<y/n> nosysdba=<y/n>
file - name of password file (mand),
password - password for SYS (mand),
entries - maximum number of distinct DBA,
force - whether to overwrite existing file (opt),
nosysdba - whether to shut out the SYSDBA logon (opt for Database Vault only).
There are no spaces around the equal-to (=) character.
