I am on Oracle9i on HP UNIX 11i.

I have a database user created for managing  database users
in the database. It has minimum sets of privileges such  as alter.
create and drop privileges. Is there anyway to restrict this user to
make any
modififications to accounts which have dba privileges. For example.
this account should not be able to alter passwords for sys, system or
drop them.
