Creating Oracle users for the repository database

Contributors NetAppZacharyWambold akseldavis

You can create an Oracle user for the repository database and assign specific privileges to perform different operations on the repository database.

You must assign the connect and resource privileges to the Oracle user. You do not have to create a user for the repository database with sysdba privileges.

However, you must create an Oracle user with the sysdba role for the target database.

    At the command prompt, enter the following command: sqlplus '/ as sysdba'
