In installing a v22 instance of Aleph on a server which already has v20, a new oracle user for Oracle 11g needs to be created, different from the Oracle user ‘oracle11’ that exists for Oracle 11.1 (22.214.171.124.0). Will ‘oracle11g’ be OK (9 characters long)?
No, 9 characters is too many. Article 000033092 (AIK: error creating Oracle user: "awk: insufficient memory for string storage") (link below) notes the following message from the AIK:
"Insert the alternative name instead oracle user (must be up to 8 characters alphanumerics lowercase)"
Thus, in the AIK, the Oracle user name can be no more than 8 characters. (This may not be limitation in Oracle, but it's clearly a limitation in the AIK.)
