    Question Unanswered: Creating a SYSDBA user

    We have a production database Oracle 8.1.7 the is running on AIX 4.3.3. This database was setup using a series of scripts by application provider. Apparently they do not use the SYSADMIN or SYSDBA functions of Oracle, so as far as I can tell these users do not exist. All management of tablespaces/indexes is done through using the admin password for that schema (i.e. sys/syswpd). How would I go about creating a SYSADMIN and SYSDBA user, and/or verifying that these users do not exist. I'm attempting to install Quest Spotlight on Oracle and this tool needs some type of SYSDBA level privileges.

    Check the docs on admin authentication.
