OPS$root user on Solaris

Rating7.8Very Good

Is their a built-in feature preventing the root user from being created as an OPS$user? I have a few accounts that are defined externally in Oracle that work fine, however, I cannot get this to work as the root user. The root user belongs to the dba group and has all the correct env variables set but I am still prompted for a password when using any utilities such as sqlplus. Am I missing a security risk here? I am not running a listener on this box, so I fail to see the security risks. This is Oracle 805 on Solaris 2.6.

Thanks for any help,
-Chuck
