On both the Application and Database servers (if applicable) where you intend to install Oracle software, you must create an account that will own the software. For M3 Business Engine we require the account name oracle.
The oracle account needs two groups dba and oinstall. Members of the dba group can administrate Oracle databases. The oinstall group is often needed for organizations that have separate groups that maintain the software and the databases.
Create the user oracle and groups dba and oinstall
# mkgroup dba # mkgroup oinstall # mkuser pgrp=dba home='/u01/app/oracle' shell='/usr/bin/ksh' groups=dba,oinstall oracle # echo oracle:oracle | chpasswd —f ADMCHG # mkdir /u01/app/oracle/tmp # chown oracle:dba /u01/app/oracle/tmp # chmod 775 /u01/app/oracle/tmp
Run the following commands:
# chgrpmem —m + lcm dba # chgrpmem —m + lcm oinstall
