I'm new to oracle vm, and installed version 3.1
I installed the vm server and manager, and set it to boot off PXE fine.. I saw the network traffic.
So now I need to connect to the console to continue.
I've tried it on a Solaris machine, and an Oracle Linux machine so far, with assorted problems.
So far, on the Solaris machine, javaws downloads a bunch of stuff, but then complains:
The web site you are trying to connect to is requesting identification.
Please select the certificate to be used when connecting.
[ EMPTY LIST SPACE BELOW THIS]
and then (ok) (cancel) buttons.
If I just press okay, it dies with "Category: Unexpected Error, from java.lang.Exception.
On the Oracle Linux machine, the thing seems to get a bit further for some reason.
It pops up an "Oracle Ovm Ras proxy" window, with an Options pulldown.
But it also spits out a "Session is invalid or timed out." popup.
Any suggestions please? The oracle manual seems to presume it will just work automatically, without giving any troubleshooting tips that I can find :(
Well, this is annoying...
There's some "magic" about calling it from the browser :(
I went to http://www-pw.physics.uiowa.edu/das2/javaPlatformTest.jbf.html
and tweaked firefox until it started javaws itself, rather than me having it save the file, and then manualy invoke "javaws xxx.jnlp".
and now... it works.
For the record, I should mention that I also downgraded my java to 1.6, as suggested by some prior posters in earlier threads.
So that was my first success.
but when I rpm removed the 1.6 version, and put back the 1.7u9 version... it worked, too.
So it can work with 1.7
I also have vncviewer installed on my local desktop. tigervnc.
It seems to have invoked that, from /usr/bin/vncviewer
