Oracle VM Manager Production Installaion (Oracle VM 3.0.1 up to 3.1.1)
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 Oracle VM Manager Production installation (Oracle VM Relase 3.0.1 up to 3.1.1). A Oracle VM Manager Production installations will install WebLogic 11g with the Oracle VM Manager applications using an existing local or remote Oracle 11g Standard or Enterprise Edition database and/or a RAC database. Oracle VM Release 3.0.1 up to 3.1.1 use the word Production for a local or remote Oracle 11g Standard or Enterprise Edition database and/or a RAC database installation. Oracle VM 3.2.1 and above use the word Custom for a local or remote Oracle 11g Standard or Enterprise Edition database and/or a RAC database installation. Custom and Production installations are fully supported for production environments.
 
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.
 
A Oracle VM Manager Production installation requires that a Oracle SE or EE Database has already been created. The Oracle VM Manager install program will ask for the Oracle Database System ID (SID), the Oracle Database SYSTEM password, the Oracle Database listener port (the default is 1521), the Oracle VM Manager database schema (the default name is “ovs”, any name can be used), and the Oracle VM Manager database schema password.
 
During the Oracle VM Manager installation, the installation program asks for the following passwords:
The Oracle VM Manager OVS Database schema password must be selected.
The password must be a minimum of 8 characters in length.
The password cannot be the same as the username.
The password cannot be the same length as the username.
The password cannot be the username spelled backwards.
The password cannot be the same as the server name or the server name with digits from 1 to 100 appended.
The password must include 1 digit and 1 alpha character.
Simple passwords will be rejected.

The Oracle 11g SE and EE Database SYSTEM password must be selected.
The password must be a minimum of 8 characters in length.
The password cannot be the same as the username.
The password cannot be the same length as the username.
The password cannot be the username spelled backwards.
The password cannot be the same as the server name or the server name with digits from 1 to 100 appended.
The password must include one digit and one alpha character.
Simple passwords will be rejected.

The Oracle WebLogic admin account password must be selected.
The password must be between 8 and 16 characters in length
The password 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 must be selected.
The password must be between 8 and 16 characters in length
The password 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 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
