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,
