Q

"Insufficient privileges" error when creating database

I'm getting the error "insufficent privileges" when I do "create database" using a custom script. I installed Oracle 9 with the user "oracle" which has administrator privileges, and I tried to create the new database with the user "oracle." The error message actually appears when it is firing the custom script.

When you create a database, you must have the following conditions met:

  1. You must sign on to the instance as SYSDBA.
  2. You must start the database in NOMOUNT mode.

Once those conditions are met, then you can issue the CREATE DATABASE command.
