This is a part of the post of how to install R12.1.3 from a VM template.
OVM is a very de-normalised way of managing VMs very unlike desktop virtualisation like VBOX.
To get started follow the userguide:
So what we will do here is:
- Discover OVS
- Create Server Pool
- Create Storage Repository
- Create VM Network
- Create Virtual NICs
Discover storage is only needed when you use NAS.
Creating the virtual machines is in another post.
Manager password should be: oracle
Create Server Pool
Try to ping the virtual IP…
Create Storage Repository
The disk is my SDA disk on the server.
Ensure disk contain no partitions otherwise it is NOT visible here…
Create VM Network
Allow VM so the network can be selected later.
Create Virtual NICs
This must be done before creating VMs.
I have created 3 VNICs above.
