Hi Emel,

Only SYSDBA will have access to the registering function ? Ordinary
users should not had the ability to create databases as they wish, it
could lead to DOS attacks.

Personally I don't like this, IMHO a database is not something you will
create every day, an intervention by the sysadmin should not be a
problem, but is that my opinion...

see you !
