If your user belongs to the "dba" group you do not need a password to connect:

$ id
uid=100(oracle) gid=100(dba)

$ sqlplus "/as sysdba"

In that case you need to create a dba group and assign it to a user. Ask you OS Support person for assistance.

Best regards.

type "id" when logged on. Or "lsuser oracle" (don't know if that works under linux). Maybe oracle's primary group is just oinstall and oracle is also member of the dba group.

If not the case. And the dba group does not exist (type "more /etc/group | grep dba" to check this) follow Frank's instructions.
