DBUA unable to recognize oracle user as unix owner when unix uid is 9 digits

While upgrading an Oracle instance from to, through DBUA I discovered a bug. If the unix uid of the oracle user is 9 digit, DBUA refuses to recognize oracle as the unix owner of the software. This issue doesn't occur with older oracle ids which were 5 digit. We got a similar issue in past with runInstaller for which an SR was logged and Oracle opened bug 10205927. For the current issue with DBUA, I have logged a new SR

Till this bug is fixed by Oracle, DBUA will fail for any instance whose oracle user has unix uid of 9 digit. All upgrades to on such instances will have to use the manual upgrade process.

I'll update this post with more details, after Oracle responds on the SR.
