We pick our home IP address in our IPv4 settings
and the required Netmask, which in this case is 255.255.255.0.
Fill in the Gateway and Primary DNS server.
I have a VM, which has a full Windows ads 2003 server running that we will use
to run other Oracle software, such as Oracle RAC when we move on to the Xen section
of our Oracle RAC virtualization series.
Add the Oracle VM name manually,
Select your time zone; I chose Europe/Amsterdam.
Type the password for the Oracle VM Agent,

solution of Oracle VM or the new Oracle Hypervisor, which is based on the open
source product we all so very well know as Xen. In the last couple of weeks,
since VMwares IPO, the market, investors, and well practically everyone, has

to see how we can run other virtualization techniques that Oracle has promised that
are not yet available.
