Oracle VM Manager Post Installation Checklist
 
Applicable for Oracle VM Release 3.3 and above 
The next example shows how to perform a Oracle VM Manager 3.3 and Above installation using the runInstaller.sh script with no options. A default Oracle VM Manager installation is an all-in-one installation with Oracle MySQL Enterprise Edition v5.6, WebLogic 11g, and the Oracle VM Manager applications. A Oracle VM Manager installation with MySQL is 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.
 
During an Oracle VM Manager installation, the installation program asks for one password for all users created and used during the installation, and the fully qualified domain name (FQDN) of the Oracle VM Manager host. 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.
 
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”
Note: Remember, do no select passwords containing special character (!;:# etc.)
 

# ./runInstaller.sh

Oracle VM Manager Post Installation Steps:

As shown in the above example, Oracle VM Manager has been successfully installed. 

1) Next, as suggested by the Oracle VM Manager installer, remove the configuration file in the /tmp directory (see the output from your Oracle VM Manager installation for the exact file name).

# rm -fr /tmp/file-name

2) Next, as suggested by the Oracle VM Manager installer, install the latest ovmcore-console RPM package for your Linux distribution to enable VNC and serial console access to virtual machines. The ovmcore-console RPM package is avilable via the Oracle Unbreakable Linux Network, and the Oracle Public yum server in the Enterprise Linux 5 Add ons (x86_64) and the Oracle Linux 6 Add ons (x86_64) RPM channels. 
To install the ovmcore-console RPM package from the Oracle Public yum server follow these steps:
 
Oracle Linux 5, as root type:
Download the Oracle Public yum server GPG key:
# wget --no-check-certificate http://public-yum.oracle.com/RPM-GPG-KEY-oracle-el5 -O /etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY-oracle
Next, import the GPG key:
# rpm --import /etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY-oracle
Next, install the ovmcore-console RPM package:
 
Oracle Linux 6, as root type:
Download the Oracle Public yum server GPG key:
# wget --no-check-certificate https://public-yum.oracle.com/RPM-GPG-KEY-oracle-ol6 -O /etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY-oracle
Next, import the GPG key:
# rpm --import /etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY-oracle
Next, install the ovmcore-console RPM package:

3) Access the Oracle VM Manager portal using the URL provided by the Oracle VM installer, i.e from the above example:

Oracle VM Manager UI:
  https://ovm-pike.local.mokumsolutions.com:7002/ovm/console
Log in with the user 'admin', and the password you set during the installation.

4) After a successful login, create a server pool by completing the following tasks:

  • Discover the Oracle VM Servers
