Hi, I'm logged in as root on RHEL 5.3.  I'm trying to su as an oracle user as follows:
[root@hostname]# su - oracle
without entering password I get the following:
bash [oracle=oracle] # command not found
[oracle@hostname]$
I still get to the oracle account, but why do I get the error.  

Thanks

Pete

Possibly an error in the .profile or .bash_profile of the oracle account

Or if not an error, the PATH is not set correctly and a command is not found

Still start with the .bash_profile
