Oracle VM Manager

The Oracle VM Manager is installed on a separate server running 64-bit Linux. In this article it was installed on Oracle Enterprise Linux (OEL) 5.7 (64-bit) with a minimum of 2G RAM, 4G swap and firewall and secure Linux disabled. The OEL installation included the following package groups:

An example of this type of Linux installations can be seen here.

Install the "oracle-validated" package to perform most of the prerequisite setup. Follow the instructions at http://public-yum.oracle.com to setup the yum repository for OL, then perform the following command.

# yum install oracle-validated
Create the "/u01" mountpoint and change its ownership to "oracle".
# mkdir /u01
# chown oracle:oinstall /u01

Mount the OVM media as the "root" user.

# # Real CD or DVD.
# mkdir /media/cdrom
# mount /dev/cdrom /media/cdrom

# # ISO image.
# mkdir /media/cdrom
# mount -o loop,ro OracleVM-Manager-3.0.1.iso /media/cdrom

Then start the installation as the "root" user. The installation requires decisions to be made about the type of installation along with several passwords. The user entry for this installation is shown in bold.

# cd /media/cdrom
# sh runInstaller.sh
