[Mono-list] Connecting to Oracle as SYSDBA

The API of System.Data.OracleClient nor its connection string provide a way for you to connect as sysdba.  This is a known limitation.   If you were using .net on windows, I would suggest for you to use odp.net from oracle.   However, odp.net does not work on mono.

DBA Privilege is not a valid connection string parameter for System.Data.OracleClient.  

There is data direct's oracle provider which may work on mono and it may have the ability to connect as sysdba.
