There is a reason why Oracle does not like to support virtual machines. This is a good example.
I am still like my original advice: Enable AMM and let Oracle manage it.I'm just trying to get through the installation steps as documented. It is unclear at best.
You got that correct: VM's are a trend.
Like C, then C++, then Java, then XML, then Ruby on Rails, etc. etc. ad nauseum.
Oracle fully supports only two VM environments: OracleVM (Oracle) and zVM (IBM z10).
The reason I dislike them is roughly the same reason why Oracle eliminated rollback segments.
Because most people configuring them can't do so in-spite of their belief systems to the contrary.
ASM is Oracle saying "we can do storage better than you can" and AMM is Oracle saying "we can do memory allocation better than you can."
So far I haven't found more than a dozen or so people on the planet to which this does not apply.
The installation steps do not apply to VMs.
