Open Source Virtualization: Oracle VM enters the Virtualization arena - Page 3

By Tarry Singh

We pick our home IP address in our IPv4 settings and the required Netmask, which in this case is

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, “oraclevm.avastu.com’.

Select your time zone; I chose ‘Europe/Amsterdam’.

Type the password for the “Oracle VM Agent”, which will be used by the Oracle VM manager.

Choose a secure password for “root.”

Choose “ok.”

Below are a couple of screenshots to see how it goes from here.

We can see the deep integration of the Oracle Virtual Server, kernel-ovs; I am assuming with Xen support.

Reboot the machine.

During the startup, you will be asked to sign this EULA; please read it carefully. I cannot stress this enough, it is a matter of Oracle and Virtualization software, and distributing it is not the right way to go.

Above is a screenshot of a plain console of the oracle Hypervisor or the Oracle VM. You can clearly see the configured NICs and bridges.


We have looked at the virtualization 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 VMware’s IPO, the market, investors, and well practically everyone, has acknowledged the presence of virtualization, which VMware has pioneered on the x86 server market. In a future article, we will do the Oracle VM Manager version 2.1 on an Oracle Enterprise Linux 5 platform, after which, we will try to see how we can run other virtualization techniques that Oracle has promised that are not yet available.
