Need to add sysdba specifier to Oracle connection

Hello, I need to log on as a sysdba to execute the  "shutdown immediate" command.

Here is what I have thus far:

using System;
      using System.Data.OracleClient;
      public class OkShutdown
            public OkShutdown()
            static string ConnectString = "";
            public static void Main(string[] parms)
                        ConnectString = "Server=DBserver;User ID=" + parms[0] + ";Password=" + parms[1] + ";Integrated Security=no;";
                        OracleConnection conn = new OracleConnection(ConnectString);
                        OracleCommand comm = new OracleCommand("shutdown immediate",conn);
                  catch (Exception e)

You could try something like:

   OracleCommand comm = new OracleCommand("CONNECT user/password AS sysdba; shutdown immediate;");

This is how you would do it through iSQLPlus, not sure if it will work through a command object though.

I will try this instead:

ConnectString = "Server=DBServer;User ID=SYS; Password=password;DBA Privelege=SYSDBA; Integrated Security=no;";

I am not sure how to configure the connect string in the scenario you provided.
