3. Patch Oracle VM Manager

3. Patch Oracle VM Manager

Applicable to Oracle VM 3.0.3, 3.1.1 and 3.2.2 
Even after a fresh installation of Oracle VM Manager, if a patch update is available, a best practice is to patch Oracle VM Manager before using Oracle VM Manager to avoid previously patched bugs. When updating Oracle VM, Oracle VM Manager must be updated first, followed by the Oracle VM Servers managed by Oracle VM Manager. As of this writing (11-13-2013), there are three Oracle VM Manager patch updates; Oracle VM Manager Release 3.0.3.546, Oracle VM Manager Release 3.1.1.625, and Oracle VM Manager Release 3.2.6.726.
 
Note: Starting with Oracle VM 3.1.1-625, Oracle only maintains the latest patch update. For example, when Oracle VM 3.2.6-726 was released on October 11th 2013, 3.2.4-524, 3.2.3-521, 3.2.3-250, 3.2.1-516 where retired and replaced with 3.2.6-726.
