Changes

Following two sqlplus commands executes similar command as RCU, and they can be used to confirm if sqlnet connects are successful as sysdba.

1.  Execute this sqlpus command, connect is expected to return ORA-01017
     -Do not change password, this it to confirm incorrect password will fail with error.
     -Replace SERVICE_NAME with site specific value and HOST if required.
