(OP)
Hi

I'm in the process of installing Oracle on my Ultra 60 and creating the needed users. I created the oracle user but when I try to login as the oracle user, id and password, the screen goes white and I'm back at the login screen.  

RE: Solaris 10 Ulltra 60 user login bounce back to login

First things first, how did you create the user?

useradd -g oinstall -G dba[,oper] oracle

RE: Solaris 10 Ulltra 60 user login bounce back to login

What happens if you try to su - oracle from the root account?

RE: Solaris 10 Ulltra 60 user login bounce back to login

probably related to the home directory for the user.  Does oracle own its home directory?  Does the parent directory have 755 permissions?  Its probably trying to write the .dt file under the user home.

RE: Solaris 10 Ulltra 60 user login bounce back to login

Unless you include -m I don't think useradd will create the user's directory for you.

RE: Solaris 10 Ulltra 60 user login bounce back to login

I think Annihilannic is right - check whether a home directory is specified in the /etc/passwd file, like:

oracle:x:205:204::/export/home/oracle:/usr/bin/ksh
