>>useradd: user oracle exists

And?

The error seems self-explanatory  You are trying to add a user that already exists.

you can see from the error that the user exists with the same name

you can check this by

grep username /etc/passwd

or you could run

finger username

to see if user exists

walkerdba,

Can you explain why you did not at least split the points?  The post you accepted was basically the same thing that I posted.  The only difference was a couple of commands to confirm the user already exists which is sort of unnecessary based on the error message.
