This blog is about an error faced while trying to use brarchive part of brtools after kernel upgrade. We tried using brarchive to cleanup space in oraarch directory but were getting error ORA-01031 : insufficient privileges as below. Tried lot of googling but found no solution. finally note 480266 – Problems with the SYSDBA/SYSOPER/INTERNAL connect was the solution
go to group file using below command
open file group with more command and found it didn’t have entries sidadm and orasid for line oper::101: and dba::102: as below
added entries as below to fix the issue and then brarchive completed without errors.
