    Understanding OS roles and group_names

    972355
      Hello to all ;

      I have difficulties to distinguish OS roles and OS privileges.

      http://www.toadworld.com/KNOWLEDGE/KnowledgeXpertforOracle/tabid/648/TopicID/ADM64E/Default.aspx
      This link says ;
      Oracle creates  two roles when  install the Oracle executables:
      OSOPER
      OSDBA

      http://docs.oracle.com/cd/B19306_01/install.102/b25286/pre_install.htm
      This link says:
      OSDBA and OSOPER  are  groups.
      Group OSDBA having SYSDBA privilege
      Group OSOPER having OSOPER Privilege


      My Question in oracle 10g :

      OSDBA and OSOPER : are they OS group_name ?
      OSDBA and OSOPER : are they OS_roles ?

      Please clarify .. thanks
