The application requires more database privileges than you have currently been granted. Click on
Help to get more version specific information


The resultant help page does not contain instructions for connecting to a 10g Database.  The help page, under the section 'Insufficient Privilege Alert' contains text not specific to 10g. It gives instructions for connecting to 7.x, 8i and 9i databases (which is irrelevant for Database Control) and does not state the required privileges for 10g databases.
