"tdposync syncdb" windows os user member of ora_dba


ADSM.ORG Senior Member

Oracle installed on Windows, oracle services and tsm scheduler for oracle service are running as windows user which is member of ora_dba group. Lets say its oracle1.
If I logon as oracle1 I have no trouble connectting to oracle using sqlplus or rman:
> sqlplus / as sysdba
> rman target /
"tdpoconf showenvironment" also works with no problem.

How do I use "tdposync syncdb" command in this case, since it keeps asking username, password and connect string:
> tdposync syncdb -nocatalog

As "User Name" I tried "oracle1", "/" but result is the same.
I don't even know what to provide for "Connect String".

What are correct parameters when connecton to oracle is configured as ora_dba windows group member user ?
