    You can lead some folks to knowledge, but you can not make them think.
    The average person thinks he's above average!
    For most folks, they don't know, what they don't know.

    Why do you want to lock out the dba if the password is lost If you connect to the database server as the user that installed oracle (normally the oracle user) Then you can get in without a password. This is by design. You should not be using the installation account as a general use account.

    Hi,
    I understand and I think so,
    I'm just curious that what will happen if a hacker uses login / as sysdba without password ?

    Thanks.
    Besr regards.

    if he is not logged into the installation user on the database server it self, it will not log him in without the SYS password.

    What results when different OS user but same OS group as installation user?

    That is a valid point. The os group (normally dba) should not be given to anyone besides the oracle installation user. If you login on the database server as a user with the dba group you will be able to login as / as sysdba. But since only root can assign the group you should be fine.
