    Oracle VM 3 with VM Manager

    962029
      Hello,

      As virt-install is not available in Oracle VM 3.0, I would like to know if there is any another way to create VMs manually in Oracle VM 3.0 (we dont want to get Oracle VM Manager)

      Thank you!!!

          Well… no. Since OVM is based on OVM Manager and the ovs-agent, which is installed on the VM servers, you will need to install OVMM somewhere to make any good use of the VM servers. You could however use OVM Managers cli interface to manage and create VMs and avoid the WebUI, but you won't get around installing OVM Manager.

            IMHO, if you want Oracle VM without Oracle VM Manager, you should investigate using Xen open source.
