Give Oracle user permissions to connect remotely

On a aws server, you need to connect via EC2-USER and then perform switch user to connect Oracle user.


Use below commands to allow Oracle user connect the aws EC2 server remotely


Connect EC2 server


Connect to your ec2 server with ec2-user and switch to oracle user and make .ssh directory to hold remote authentication key

su - oracle
mkdir .ssh
chmod 700 .ssh


Add remote authentication


Below commands will add remote authentication to oracle user

touch .ssh/authorized_keys
chmod 600 .ssh/authorized_keys
GET http://169.254.169.254/latest/meta-data/public-keys/0/openssh-key>.ssh/authorized_keys

Now you must be able to login to EC2 server via putty directly with Oracle user!
