Oracle VM Availability Protection

This post is applicable to Oracle VM Release 3.2+ 

Oracle VM Manager is the centralized management and operations center for Oracle VM. Without Oracle VM Manager operations will quickly screech to a halt, with no visibility and management capabilities for business critical Oracle workloads.
 
Oracle VM Manager and the Oracle VM Manager CLI map and display the meta-data from all of the objects under its management. The object meta-data and server pool configurations are distributed across Oracle VM environments in the Oracle Manager database repository, the Oracle VM Server’s Berkeley Databases and local configuration files. The Oracle VM Manager database repository contains any customization to the default names that the Oracle VM objects are given at the time of discovery. For example, using Oracle VM Manager administrators replace the default UUID names with user-friendly names for server pools, storage, network, yum, virtual machine, template and assembly objects. Each Oracle VM Server has a local Berkeley Database along with local configurations files that contain server pool meta-data and configurations. Each Oracle VM server pool also has centralized Berkeley Database contained in the pool filesystem with meta-data. The meta-data from all of the objects managed under Oracle VM Manager, the Oracle VM Server’s Berkeley Databases and configurations files can be used to capture the global Oracle VM running configuration.
