I am trying to connect to a mounted standby Oracle database using DBI:Oracle

To make this connection I must user a connect string similar to sys/password@dbname as sysdba

The "as sysdba" is required to connect as sys user.

I am looking for the correct connect string syntax that includes as sysdba in it.

I have found the solution.
For DBI:Oracle to connect as sysdba here is the string

my($dbh) = DBI->connect("dbi:Oracle:$site","$dbuser","$dbpass", { ora_session_mode => 2 });

You need to include { ora_session_mode => 2 } which sets the connect mode to sysdba.
