Fix Recommendation

Create separate DBMS host OS groups for developer and production DBAs.

Do not assign production DBA OS group membership to accounts used for development.

Remove development accounts from production DBA OS group membership.

Recommend establishing a dedicated DBMS host for production DBMS installations (See Checks DG0109 and DG0110). A dedicated host system in this case refers to an instance of the operating system at a minimum. The operating system may reside on a virtual host machine where supported by the DBMS vendor.

Check Contents

If the DBMS or DBMS host is not shared by production and development activities, this check is Not a Finding.

Review OS DBA group membership.

If any developer accounts as identified in the System Security Plan have been assigned DBA privileges, this is a Finding.

NOTE: Though shared production/non-production DBMS installations was allowed under previous database STIG guidance, doing so may place it in violation of OS, Application, Network or Enclave STIG guidance. Ensure that any shared production/non-production DBMS installations meets STIG guidance requirements at all levels or mitigate any conflicts in STIG guidance with your DAA.
