Dear DBAs

Could you please help me to write a Shell or sql scripts (parameterized) for following.

Copy_user("DB name","New User","Password","Existing user");

Shell copy_users.sh DB name New User Password Existing user

DB name: For additional check to confirm that we are running in correct DB.

Thanks

Sorry but there really isn't an 'easy' way to do this.  There are a lot of steps involved.

If you Google around for oracle clone user, you can find some scripts people have out there.

I doubt you'll find anyone here that will write one for you.

If you have specific questions about something, we can help with that.

If you were here to get someone to write all the code for you then I agree.

If you were here to figure out how to do this, then I have to disagree.

Short of writing the code, I believe we answered the question as well as we could.

If you needed additional information you should have asked.
