User equivalence check failed

I could not get the user equivalence check to work on my Solaris 10 server when trying to install 11gR2 Grid.

No issues were encountered during the install.

<< Message: Result: User equivalence check failed for user “grid”. >>

Cluvfy and the OUI tries to find SSH on Solaris at /usr/local/bin.

Workaround is to create a softlink from /usr/bin/ssh to /usr/local/bin.

Note: User equivalence is required for installations (IE using OUI) and patching. DBCA, NETCA, and DBControl also require user equivalence.
