Linux User and Groups Setup for OBI11g Install

Christian Screen | | January 8, 2011

Typically setting up the user base and groups for an install is rather straightforward.  Setting up the users and groups for OBIEE 11g on a Linux box is really no different.  I am attempting to use this post as a reference document so feel free to use it that way as well.  I foresee small changes and updates to it over the next year so feel free to comment if you have conducted an install and noticed any variations are simpler methods.  Again, the initial user/group setup is really basic, I am just outlining some code here.

Check existing users by entering the following to see what already exists:

users

groups

Enter the following in a terminal window as “root” or similarly privileged user.

groupadd oinstall

groupadd FMW

useradd -g FMW -G oinstall,FMW obi11g

passwd obi11g

mkdir -p /u01/app

mkdir -p /u01/FMW

chown -R obi11g:oinstall /u01/

chown -R obi11g:FMW /u01/FMW

chmod -R 775 /u01
