Trying to grant SYSDBA to SYSTEM or any other user fails with :
ORA-01994: GRANT failed: password file missing or disabled
However, when using truss or tusc or any other tool to trace OS system calls, you can verify the passwordfile exists :
stat("/oracle/home/10202/dbs/orapwmysid", 0x800003ffbfffb2d0) = 0 stat("/oracle/home/10202/dbs/orapwmysid", 0x800003ffbfffb2d0) = 0
