Okay I am a beginner in the Oracle VM "world".
As I learned. The Oracle VM version is 3.1.
Before booting and setting up an virtual machine from an ISO Image for example an OEL 6.3 iso image I need to import this image from an ftp or http server.
Could you please give me an example how to do this from an internal source and what do I need to do this from an external Oracle source?
Concerning the HW plattform:
My Oracle VM Server is a single server with four local sata disks, one network adapter and 32 GB RAM and an i5 core CPU.
FYI you can deploy the OVM Manager directly on a OVM 3 host e.g.
"OVM 3.0.3 import VirtualBox OVM Manager 3.0.3 OVA template", Re: OVM 3.0.3 import VirtualBox OVM Manager 3.0.3 OVA template
The "VirtualBox Templates for Oracle VM 3.1" are here,
I highly recommend using VirtualBox.
yes thanks for the answer but it doesn't solve my problem.
I just want to create new virtual machines on an Oracle VM server by using ISO Images like OEL 6.3 and so on.
So doing this I need to setup an http or ftp Server. How could I do this and is it possible to create this http server on the Oracle VM Server?
Yes it is possible to create the FTP or HTTP Server on the VM Server (hopefully you are referring to hypervisor server).....
You need to install the rpm for vftp, then configure the it for anonymous access and run the service.....
Once done, you can use the ftp server as ftp://<server ip/name>/<path to the file>/<iso file name>
