Log into Oracle using (Easy Connect) EZConnect

You can use Third Party Tools like Toad or Navicat which have excellent GUI to get you logged into Oracle

But if you want to go the traditional way; find below instructions

  • Open Command Prompt
  • Type:  sqlplus sys/password@<hostname>/<global service name> as sysdba
  • Typing the password in this manner is never recommended; instead use below option
  • Type: sqlplus sys@”<hostname>/<global service name>” as sysdba
  • It will then prompt to enter password
  • An alternate way is to log into SQL initially without a user
  • sqlplus / nolog
  • Now under SQL Prompt; type connect sys@”<hostname>/<global service name>” as sysdba
