I'm trying to install Database on Windows Server 2012 R2. I want the Home User to be a windows AD Domain user account, rather than a local account, because documentation says I must if I want to use OS Authentication (NTS) (and for other reasons). However, during install, on the "Specify Oracle Home User", if I put the name of my pre-created AD account in the "User Name" box and click Next, I get the error

INS-32101 Specified Oracle Home user does not exist.

I've tried entering the username as


and as


and as


with no difference in outcome. If I create a local Windows user account and enter that as the Home User username, the installer lets me continue without errors.

Anyone seen/solved this problem?
