How do I set permissions on a group


I have been asked to set a a group to 777. How do you do this? Or is a better question where would I find the group to do a chmod 777 to it?

Thanks!

Robin.

Hmmm...you can change file's permission to 777, then the second number represents group's permissions. But you can't change group permission to 777. Could you give more details of what you'd like to do?

It's an Oracle issue. For some reason, I cannot connect to a database as SYSDBA even though the user is in the group defined as the OSDBA group. The group name is 'dba', and Oracle are asking me to change the group access to 777...

Oracle messages are tricky...this one probably means that it suggests to change file permission to 777. The command will be
chmod 777 filename
The only thing is to find the right file...
