We have always run both Grid/CRS and RDBMS from the same account and have never
had any issues. It is normally required to have separate accounts if you have
implemented segregation of duties where different groups are responsible for
maintain these two stacks.

Subject: oracle and grid accounts
A DBA is pushing to eliminate the grid account from future installs.
So the Oracle database software and the Oracle Grid software would be installed
under the oracle account.
The justification is that we shouldn’t have to switch between the oracle and
grid accounts to do whatever commands needed. We can simply execute a script
to “switch the environment”.
I came across the Oracle recommendation in the documentation which is to have
an oracle account and a grid account.
I am wondering if anyone is aware of any technical limitation?
