What's the best way to set up groups for both an Oracle and Weblogic installation on Solaris 9?

I followed the Oracle installation instructions and created the dba group and it's own user account named oracle.  I'm just wondering should I do the same for Weblogic.  And, if I do have a weblogic group should each of them be added to each other's group or should they be strictly apart?

You can't add Groups to Groups.

I think the limit on the number of Groups a user can be in is 8. I might be wrong. But when a user is in too many Groups, grpck will complain.

Anyway, my point is, to quote Occam's Razor, do not multiply objects without necessity. If the Weblogic docs don't mention creating a Group for it or its users, then you prolly shouldn't bother, unless there is some clear need.

I would prefer users in seprate group. For the user or adm who perform tasks in both
Oracle and Weblogic, you can add them as a member of both group.

if you use admintool (GUI), you can edit the user's properties to add the sencondary groups.
or in group properties, add the user to the member list.

you can you "usermod" in commandline to do the job.
man usermod
