Last night I installed Oracle 12C on OEL 6.4. See Installing Oracle Spatial and Graph 12c on OEL 6.4 .
Today I attempted to create a test user following a syntax that worked for 11g but I received a permission error.
$ sqlplus sys as sysdba

Oracle Database 12c Enterprise Edition Release 18.104.22.168.0 - 64bit Production
With the Partitioning, OLAP, Advanced Analytics and Real Application Testing options
SQL> GRANT DBA, CONNECT, RESOURCE TO STEVE IDENTIFIED BY dbl-secret-pwd;
GRANT DBA, CONNECT, RESOURCE TO STEVE IDENTIFIED BY dbl-secret-pwd
ERROR at line 1:
ORA-65049: creation of local user or role is not allowed in CDB$ROOT
Any ideas why I get this error in 12c?
No idea whatsoever. And since this is the Spatial Forum, it's unlikely you will get an answer here. You're better off posting in the Installation forum I think, I can't find a 12C forum so don't know if that exists yet.
