The Oracle VM Manager configuration file “.config ” is located on the Oracle VM Manager host(s) in the /u01/app/oracle/ovm-manager-3/ directory. The next example shows the syntax of the Oracle VM Manager .config file.
DBHOST=<THE HOSTNAME OF THE DATABASE SERVER>
SID=<ORACLE DATABASE SID>
LSNR=<THE LISTENER PORT FOR THE DATABASE>
APEX=<THE APPLICATION EXPRESS PORT>
OVSSCHEMA=<THE DEFAULT ORACLE VM MANAGER DATABASE SCHEMA NAME>
WLSADMIN=<THE DEFAULT WEBLOGIC SERVER ADMIN NAME>
OVSADMIN=<THE DEFAULT ORACLE VM MANAGER ADMIN NAME>
COREPORT=<THE DEFAULT ORACLE VM MANAGER CORE PORT>
UUID=<THE ORACLE VM MANAGER UUID>
The next example shows a .config file from a production Oracle VM Manager host.
# cat /u01/app/oracle/ovm-manager-3/.config
# cat .config
Before backing up the .config file, Oracle VM Manager must be shut down. To shut down Oracle VM Manager, access the Oracle VM Manager host as the root user, and type “service ovmm stop”, as shown in the next example.
# service ovmm stop
Stopping Oracle VM Manager [ OK ]
Once Oracle VM Manager is stopped, backup the /u01/app/oracle/ovm-manager-3/.config. The next example shows how to backup the .config file in the root users home directly with a descriptive name “ovm-back-” and the date.
# zip -9r /~ovm-back-`hostname -s`-`date +%F`.zip /u01/app/oracle/ovm-manager-3/.config
Once the .config file is backed up, start Oracle VM Manager by typing “service ovmm start” as shown in the following example.
# service ovmm start
Starting Oracle VM Manager [ OK ]
