Oracle Permissions for vCloud Director

After reading the vCloud Director documentation, I disagree with the order in which the database creation is presented.

If you have a look here at the VMware KB, you will see that the documentation recommends you create a user account in the second step. Then, in the second to last step they have you tie the same user account to the CLOUD_DATA tablespace.

If the intention is to use the same user account as you created in step #2, then this latter command will fail, as the user already exists.
