We are in process of to installing 7.2 (Software Bundle) with remote database option.

From installation guide - It appear to be only 'oracle' is allowed by the installation process. If we wish to use a non-root username other than 'oracle' username and primary group 'oinstall'. Has anyone tried it before and are there any known issues/limitations?

for e.g

-- user

aveksa for oracle


avksagrp for oinstall



1. root installation is not an option

2. service accounts 'oracle' and group 'oinstall' are owned by database teams.
