Assume that a virtual private catalog user is granted the
REGISTER DATABASE privilege, which implicitly grants the
CATALOG FOR DATABASE privilege for any registered database. This user registers multiple databases. If you
REGISTER DATABASE privilege from this user, then this user retains
CATALOG FOR DATABASE privileges for the registered databases. The
CATALOG privileges include registering and unregistering the specified databases.
To prevent this user from accessing the metadata for any databases or registering additional databases, execute
REVOKE ALL PRIVILEGES for this user. To revoke
CATALOG privileges for a subset of the databases registered by this user, execute
REVOKE CATALOG FOR DATABASE for each database in the subset.
||Revokes recovery catalog access for the specified database from the specified user.
You can specify the database by either database name or DBID. If you specify a database name when more than one database with this name is registered in the recovery catalog, then RMAN returns an error. In this case, specify the database by DBID.
||Revokes the ability to for the specified user to register new databases in this recovery catalog (see Example 3-31).|
||Specifies the name of the user from which you are revoking privileges.|
Example 3-31 Revoking Privileges from a Virtual Private Catalog Users
Assume that you connect RMAN to a base recovery catalog as the recovery catalog owner
rco. As the base catalog owner, you use the RMAN
GRANT command as follows to give
bckop2 the ability to register any database in her virtual private catalog, but grant
bckop3 access to only a subset of the databases in the data center:
RMAN> CONNECT CATALOG rco@catdb recovery catalog database Password: password connected to recovery catalog database RMAN> GRANT REGISTER DATABASE TO bckop2; RMAN> GRANT CATALOG FOR DATABASE prod TO bckop3; RMAN> GRANT CATALOG FOR DATABASE prodb TO bckop3; RMAN> EXIT;
Later, you want to restrict the privileges for user
bckop2 so that this user can no longer register new databases, so you connect to the base catalog as
rco and execute a
REVOKE command. Note that
bckop2 retains catalog privileges on the database that this user has already registered.
RMAN> CONNECT CATALOG rco@catdb recovery catalog database Password: password connected to recovery catalog database RMAN> REVOKE REGISTER DATABASE FROM bckop2;
