    May I use Oracle VM Template for EBS on existing VM enviroment

    993945
      Hello,

      I need help on whether I can use Oracle VM Template for E-business suite, to quickly install EBS on the VM environment I got from our VM system administrator. I am in a big company and I don't have standalone server for my use. So I have applied a linux VM environment. The linux OS has already been ready in that VM. The next thing I want to do is to install EBS R12.1.3 on it for using. As you know, if there is a way for us to use Oracle VM Template for E-business suite, that will be a rapid way. But my colleagues told me, on such a VM which has already been installed OS, I cannot use Oracle VM template for EBS to install EBS. I can only download the standard installation files and setup EBS step by step.
      Could anyone told me whether I can use Oracle VM Template for E-business suite on such VM environment I got?
      Appreciate for your help!

      Best Regards,
      Jim Yang

          There are pre-built 12.1.3 VMs available that you can install directly.

          http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/server-storage/vm/ebs-093153.html

          These require the use of Oracle VM software - the instructions are very detailed.

            Correct. And, you will have install 12.1.1 then upgrade to 12.1.3

            If you want to use Oracle VM template for EBS, then you have to lose your host OS

              Hi Jim Yang,

              Using a template would be better as a fresh install of linux in most of the install is HVM. A Template is PVM which should perform better.
              See also:

              Oracle VM: Comparison of Guest Virtualisation Modes; HVM, PVM and PVHVM (Doc ID 757719.1)

              At the end it is up to you to use a PVM or HVM Client.

              Regards,
              Ronald
