Hi ,

Currently my database is running on 2 node cluster database. Cluster & database version is 10.2.0.5 . crs and db has been installed as oracle user.

Now i am trying to install 11.2.0.2 as grid user. While running runinstaller i am getting below error.

*[INS-40420] The current installation user is not the same as the installation owner of the existing Oracle Grid Infrastructure software*


Should I install 11gr2 as oracle user?

Thanks,

    Hello,
    you are trying to upgrade your CRS. In this case the use of CRS 10G and GRID 11G must be the same.

    INS-40420     The current installation user is not the same as the installation owner of the existing Oracle Grid Infrastructure software.
    Cause:     Restart the installation as the user that owns the existing Grid home.
    Action:     The installer detects that the current installation user (string) is not the same as the existing Oracle Grid Infrastructure software user (string). To upgrade the existing software, run the installer as the user owning the Oracle Grid Infrastructure home
    regards

    Hi Friend,

    Please check the following permissions for all the below :

    Grid Infrastructure Home Owner : grid
    Primary Group : oinstall
    Secondary Groups : asmadmin, asmdba, asmoper

    RDBMS Home Owner : oracle
    Primary Group : oinstall
    Secondary Groups : dba, oper, asmdba

    In case of stand alone set up, if the 11.2 Database be managed by Oracle Restart ( srvctl stop/start ), then 'grid' user should also be a part of 'dba' group.

    The ASM Disks would be owned by grid:asmadmin

    Please check once again...Before starts

    Hope it helps...

    Thanks
