Hi,

  I have an Oracle databases running in a Linux server.

  The Oracle Base folder includes Oracle Homes and others ORA files/configurations.

   I have an issue with a user that needs access to the ORACLE Base folder, but i can only give it read only access so that she/he will be able to connect to the server using Putty or WinSCP and be able to view only the Oracle files and anything in the ORA home with read mode access.

  A local user in the server is what they are asking for.

  Is like create a user with read only access to the entire directory /opt/app/oracle.

  How to create a user that has such privileges and that it does not affect my current Oracle installations and configurations.

  Regards,

     Joe Echavarría -
