sap NW 7.4 installation with oracle 12c


We are trying to install the NW 7.4 with oracle 12c as standalone machine.

During the phase of install database server software phase, we got message as below snap

but we got doubt as why we need to install grid? please suggest us how can we proceed in that.

Note: we selected the option "install DB with oracle user" is there any relation between this?

I already mentioned that the Installation for 12c is NOT supported (software still is not ready).

For Oracle 11g "ora<sid>" was single instance and "oracle" was RAC or ASM, both require the grid.

For oracle 12c, the "oracle" user is a MUST, but, as I mentioned already 3 times, the SAP installation software still is not ready. ONLY UPGRADES to 12c are supported, not NEW installations.

There you have your answer.

Now, you  have done a new installation on 12c with the ora<sid> user, so you have a NON SUPPORTED installation. It is OK if it only for practice.
