Oracle VM Manager Post Installation Checklist
 
Applicable for Oracle VM Release 3.0.1 up to 3.1.1
The next example shows how to perform a Demo Oracle VM Manager 3.0.1 up to 3.1.1 installation. Please note that a Demo installation is not supported by Oracle Enterprise Manager or Oracle support due to the use of the Oracle 11g XE Database. The Oracle 11g XE Database is a free unsupported release of the Oracle Database.
 
Note: Restoring Oracle VM Manager includes using the UUID restore switch (-u, or --uuid) with the UUID of the Oracle VM Manager installation that will be restored. The Oracle VM Manager UUID is listed in the “.config ” file on the Oracle VM Manager host in the /u01/app/oracle/ovm-manager-3/ directory as well as in each server pool' .ovspoolfs file (OVS_REPO_MGR_UUID=UUID) located in the pool file system. The UUID restore switch is used with the runInstall.sh script, i.e. ./runInstaller.sh -u UUID.
 
During an Oracle VM Manager Demo installation, the installation program asks for the following passwords:
  • The Oracle XE SYS and SYSTEM account passwords must be selected. The Oracle XE SYS and SYSTEM account passwords cannot contain special characters.
  • The Oracle VM Manager OVS Database schema password must be selected. The password cannot contain special characters and must be between 8 and 16 characters in length. Passwords must contain at least 1 lower case and 1 upper case letter. Passwords must contain at least 1 numeric value.
  • The Oracle WebLogic admin account password must be selected. The password must be between 8 and 16 characters in length and must have at least 1 lower case and 1 upper case letter. The password must have at least 1 numeric value or special character
  • The Oracle VM Manager admin account password must be selected. The password must be between 8 and 16 characters in length and must have at least 1 lower case and 1 upper case letter. The password must have at least 1 numeric value or special character
Each service has a slightly different password policy. Select your passwords carefully to avoid installation errors and post installation challenges.

Tip: The alphanumeric character set consists of the numbers 0 to 9 and letters A to Z.
 
  • Download the Oracle VM Manager installation media (not source) from the Oracle Software Delivery Cloud - Oracle Linux and Oracle VM portal.
  • Copy the Oracle VM Manager installation media to a directory on the Oracle VM Manager host.
  • Log in to the Oracle VM Manager host as root, and unzip the file.
  • Mount the ISO file by typing “mount -o loop <FILE NAME>.iso /mnt”
  • Change to the /mnt directory, i.e. “cd /mnt.
  • Verify that host name in the /etc/hosts file is associated with the server's public IP address.
  • Run the installer script as root, by typing “./runInstaller.sh”

# ./runInstaller.sh
