Server Manager is not supported in Oracle9i, and the DBA must use SQL*Plus instead. Most Server Manager scripts should work in a SQL*Plus environment, but some scripts may need to be modified.
The Oracle professional must understand how to use server manager commands within the
Oracle SQL*Plus product.
In order to connect to SQL*Plus and issue DBA commands, Oracle allows you to connect to
SQL*Plus AS SYSDBA or
Once connected to the database, the Oracle DBA can
startup the database,
shutdown the database, and
provide trace files, and
use the oradebug facility.
In the following examples, one sees how Oracle is used in order to connect to the database and issue startup and shutdown commands:
connect / as sysdba
connect system/manager as sysdba
These commands can also easily be placed inside shell script to perform routine database functions:
