How to setup ArcSDE 10.1 on LINUX to coneect to user-schema geodatabases

I need to setup ArcSDE services on a LINUX machine to user-schema geodatabases under ORACLE on a different LINUX machine and I don't seem to be able to do it. As far as I recollect from diverse entries in the ArcGIS ressource center
a) I have to setup a separate ArcSDE service for each user-schema with an unambigous service name and port number
b) I have to store the service name and port number as well in the $SDEHOME/etc/services.sde as in the /etc/services
c) I need a distinct dbinit.sde named dbinit_<service name>.sde for each service
d) in each dbinit_<service name>.sde I have to name the user-schema I want the service to connect to

First of all I maybe have not found further conditions I have to meet.
Secondly item d) is where I do not know how to name the user-schema. Do I have to set the SDEUSER variable ?

Please be someone so kind to help me !

Thanks and kind regards,

No, those instructions are for using multiple Oracle instances (I prefer to use multiple
SDEHOMEs over renaming etc files).

User-schema geodatabases all work in one service, so you don't need to create more
than a single service. 

Of course with a remote server connection, you shouldn't be using an application
server service at all -- just use Direct Connect and change the user schema in
the properties page.

As vince mentioned, you only need one ArcSDE Application server instillation.

hopefully, this link can help guide you:
