I think there is a small misunderstanding between the Templates seen in OVM Manager and the templates including preinstalled software which you can download from Oracle.
These preconfigured Templates which you can download need to ask for parameters when installing (like hostname, IP etc.), and this can only be done by commandline.
Hence these templates cannot easily be imported as templates into the OVM Manager (yet... maybe in future, but definitely not in OVM 2.2.1), since there is not option to pass parameters to the templates.
After you created your VM (via commandline) out of these templates however, you can easily import the running VM into the OVM Manager to administer the VM further.
Hope that helps
thanks for a last somebody is replying..
"After you created your VM (via commandline) out of these templates however, you can easily import the running VM into the OVM Manager to administer the VM further."
How do I do that ? I'm currently planning to deploy the VM into a server pool contains several servers. Is it still possible to do that ?

here's the readme I got:
EL5U5 x86_64 10GB system image for PVM guests
Released on Apr 06 2010
* Apr 06 2010
- Bump the template release number to 2.5.
- Template is created using EL5.5 JeOS.
- SElinux is enabled.
- iptable is enabled.
- Convert image files to sparse image format
is it the right one or not ?
I'm confused here, if what I used is the wrong template, could you help me point to one example of template in Oracle edelivery that can be imported through Oracle VM ?
closing moment for my personal OVM campaign in my office....
I guess we're just not ready for expecting such VM solution from Oracle... to bad...
we're also begin to move out to DB2 database...
goodbye, it's been a nice and warm and quick responding community here in OTN Discussion Forum,
too bad it didn't work well with Oracle VM...
simply unzip the contents of the tgz file into a directory (tar -xvzf OVM_EL5U2_X86_64_ORACLE11G_PVM.tgz)
There should be a script and a README included.
After that you start the script which will ask you for hostname and some other stuff regarding the database.
This will then start the VM and it is ready to use.
Last step then is to import the running VM into OVM manager to be able to control it via. OVM manager (Via. Ressources => Import)
I can't follow you there... here's the extracted content of "OVM_EL5U2_X86_64_ORACLE11G_PVM.tgz"
here's the README
OEL 5.2 X86_64 Oracle 11g image for PVM guests
Released on Feb 02 2009
* Mon Feb 02 2009
- Bumped the release number from 2.1.2 to 2.2 .
- Replace system image with the image based on OEL 5.2 JeOS.
- Upgraded kernel to kernel-xen-2.6.18-22.214.171.124.1.el5, ocfs2 and oracleasm
were upgraded correspondingly.
- Added strace, gdb packages.
- Upgraded oracle-validated to 1.0.0-16.el5
- Moved Oracle home from LVM2 logical volume to regular ext3 partition.
how does this relate with your answer ?
sorry (I had another image in mind, e.g. the OVM Manager image does have a shell script).
In this case it's even easier:
=> Extract it to a folder under the running_pool
=> Import the image in OVM Manager
=> Start it up, connect via. the VNC console and set the required parameters.
Here are some whitepapers and a flash demo how to use these images:
still no luck,
- extract the OVM_EL5U2_X86_64_ORACLE11G_PVM.tgz to /OVS/running_pool
- import Virtual Machine Image through VM Manager
- status: Import Error
Register an empty virtual machine
register the virtual machine genernal information
get the virtual machine detail information...
Invalid virtual machine type(HVM/PVM).
still the same error
