How To Create Weblogic Server Domain For Fusion Middleware Usage (With JRF And EM) With Non Installation User In Unix (Doc ID 1454862.1)

Last updated on AUGUST 12, 2020

Applies to:

Oracle Fusion Middleware - Version 11.1.1.5.0 and later
Generic UNIX

Goal

Introduction

This document describes how to be able to install Oracle Fusion Middleware with UNIX operating system user(for example) "user1", member of group "group1", and be able to create a domain with user "user2", member of group "group1". This solution has only been verified for generic domain usaging products, such as ADF domains, SOA or WebCenter based installations that only require a WebLogic server domain and do not use OPMN based instances.

Clarification

According to the Oracle Fusion Middleware 11.1.1.4 Installation Planning Guide  available at  http://docs.oracle.com/cd/E17904_01/install.1111/b32474/common.htm#CFFHJDFD, the following, is a valid configuration approach

"3.3 Installation and Configuration Privileges

The user who installs a Fusion Middleware product owns and has read, write, and execute privileges on the binary files installed in the Oracle home. Other users in the operating system group have only read and execute privileges (no write privileges). 
This means they cannot write to the files, but they can use the installed binaries in the Oracle home to configure a domain or set of Fusion Middleware products. 
During configuration, the files generated by the configuration process are owned by the user who ran the Configuration Wizard. 
The user who ran the Configuration Wizard has read, write, and execute privilege on those files. Other users in the operating system 
group can read and execute the files, but they do not have write privileges. These defaults are set with the assumption that all the 
administrators are in the same group. Multiple administrators in that group will be configuring domains and products from a common set of 
Middleware homes and Oracle homes."

However in release 11.1.1.5 and later

11.1.1.5 documentation => http://docs.oracle.com/cd/E21764_01/install.1111/b32474/common.htm#CFFHJDFD
11.1.1.6 documentation => http://docs.oracle.com/cd/E23943_01/install.1111/b32474/common.htm#CFFDEGHC

The documentation is changed and this specific topic has been documented with a stronger restriction suggestion.  However in any case, it is documented as prohibited, but rather still possible.

3.3.1 Installation and Configuration Privileges

The user who installs a Fusion Middleware product owns and has read, write, and execute privileges on the binary files installed in 
the Oracle home. Other users in the operating system group have only read and execute privileges (no write privileges). 
This means they cannot write to the files, but they can use the installed binaries in the Oracle home to configure a domain or 
set of Fusion Middleware products.

During configuration, the files generated by the configuration process are owned by the user who ran the Configuration Wizard. 
The user who ran the Configuration Wizard has read, write, and execute privilege on those files. Other users in the operating system group 
can read and execute the files, but they do not have write privileges.

To ensure the proper permissions and privileges for all files, *** the same owner must perform both tasks *** - install the Oracle Fusion Middleware 
product and configure the WebLogic Server domain using the Configuration Wizard.
