  I have always worked on Sun/HP platforms in the past. There it was clear to install the Oracle kernel under an "Oracle" OS account, as opposed to root.

  However, now I have to install it on a Windows 2003 64-bit platform. Do most DBAs installing on MSWin install as the "administrator" account, or also create an "oracle" account and make it a member of the admin group?
What are the pros/cons of it on MSWin?

11g/ASM/RAC in case it matters.

thanks. Received on Thu Jun 12 2008 - 15:34:55 CDT
