Re^3: DBI Password connection to Oracle
in thread DBI Password connection to Oracle
nobody or other service users on unix generally have password set to NP or some other special string that does not actually work as a password for the system. This in effect locks out standard auth on the user and only allows su - actions from root.
The second one as I read it means that DBI access is out of the question -- It either means that his script cant hold the auth keys (no auth at all) or that the auth should be in a form that is not usable in perl.
