Syntax and Description
USERID = [username | / | SYS]
If you do not specify the
USERID parameter, then you are prompted for it. If only a slash is used, then
USERID defaults to your operating system login.
If you connect as user
SYS, then you must also specify
AS SYSDBA in the connect string.
Because the string,
AS SYSDBA, contains a blank, some operating systems may require that the entire connect string be placed in quotation marks or marked as a literal by some method. Some operating systems also require that quotation marks on the command line be preceded by an escape character, such as backslashes.
See your Oracle operating system-specific documentation for information about special and reserved characters on your system.
