I think you should post your question in an Unix forum, this is an Oracle one.

In addition, saying "i am unable" does not give any clue why you are unable and so you can't have any accurate answer.

HI Michel Cadot,

i have created the user oracle with the command below:
useradd oracle
usermod -u 104 -g dba -d /home/oracle oracle

i got:

bash-3.00# su - oracle
su: No directory!

As I said, this is an Oracle forum.
Better post your problem in a Unix one.

grep oracle /etc/passwd
most likely the line in /etc/passwd for oracle does not contain /home/oracle
