PROBLEM:

While creating a user in root container in the multitenant database, Got error ORA-65049.

 

SQL> show con_name

CON_NAME
——————————
CDB$ROOT
SQL> create user TESTUSER identified by TESTUSER container=current;
create user TESTUSER identified by TESTUSER container=current
*
ERROR at line 1:
ORA-65049: creation of local user or role is not allowed in CDB$ROOT

SOLUTION:

Normal user i.e local user can’t be created in root container. Only common users starting with C## can only be created in root container. And use either container=ALL or dont mention anything for container.
