    I cannot login as SYSDBA

    566450
      Hi.
      I'm running Oracle 8i for Windows NT (8.0.5) on Windows Server 2000. Somewhere I read that I need to be in ora_dba group on Windows NT platform in order to login as sysdba to database. But I cannot find this group. When I try to login as sysdba as system/manager, login fails with ORA-01031: insufficient privileges. I need to execute startup and shutdown commands from SQL*Plus.
      Thx for help

      C:\>sqlplus /nolog
      SQL*Plus: Release 8.0.5.0.0 - Production on Mon Mar 26 8:13:23 2007
