Your question is a little confusing but I'm assuming that when you said:

nj09mhf0005[oracle:utildb] 3: ssh nj09mhf0362

Open in new window


The nj09mhf0005[oracle:utildb] 3: part was the console prompt, and you typed and executed the command ssh nj09mhf0362

In that case, you attempted to ssh into the nj09mhf0362 machine, and it will use whatever username was of the currently logged in user on your currently machine.

If you want to explicitly specify a user to login as on the remote machine, use a command like ssh someuser@nj09mhf0362

If no user is given on the commandline ssh uses the name of the user you're logged in as, here probably "oracle", but please verify with "whoami" or "echo $USER"

"nj09mhf0362" is the name of the target host, by the way.

What appears in the prompt is not necessarily the username, because the prompt is configurable (PS1 variable).

Better run

whoami

or

echo $USER
