RMAN Output File Permissions with ASM/Grid Infrastructure

Hi Everyone,


I've noticed that the backup files produced by RMAN (Database is Enterprise Edition) )on a RHEL5.5. server which is running ASM have group permissions assigned to ASMADMIN (so the file permissions are assigned to ORACLE:ASMADMIN) as opposed to OINSTALL or any other group.

While this is not an issue (it's not currently impacting us in any way) I'm curious as to how and why this happens. I suspect it is related to the fact that the oracle executable has these permissions also but I can't find any material to confirm my suspicion. If anyone could shed some light on this for me that would be great.
