Running Swingbench oewizard in lights-out mode and connecting as SYSDBA

It seemed a simple enough thing to need to do;

Use the Swingbench oewizard tool to generate 1TB of data in my test database on DSSD, using the lights-out mode.

I am guessing everyone else knows how to do this, but it wasn’t obvious to me! And after spending nearly thirty minutes online trying to figure out how to connect through JDBC thin drivers as a SYSDBA privileged account, I finally realized that you specify the SYS password, but you DON’T specify the SYS username

So for any other DBAs as dense as me; here is how to create a 1TB Swingbench SOE schema using the oewizard in lights-out mode:

./oewizard -cl -create -scale 1000 -u soe -p soe -ts soe -tc 96 -df +DATA -cs //localhost:1521/dssd04 -dt thin -part -allindexes -bigfile -dbap oracle

After indexes are added, the SOE tablespace will be about 2.2TB.
