Granting sysdba in Oracle RAC

All users with SYSDBA privileges are in password file. But, in most RAC environments the password file is local. That is not shared between instances.

Hence, in RAC environments when you grant someone SYSDBA privilege then you must do the same in all RAC instances.

grant sysdba to <username>;

select * from gv$pwfile_users;
