Though, once you move to SE or EE, you'll probably notice a nice speed improvement in the UI, because XE is single-threaded, while SE and EE have no memory/CPU limitations.
So this is a great case to warn everyone out there - do **NOT** be tempted to use XE for production OVM implementations!!!!! It will work one day, but not the next.
I'm guessing an XE backup will not work with SE or EE right?Yeah, it works fine. You can backup XE and restore to SE or EE. That's the whole point of XE. :)

I got similar error after database reset.
we give you a limited use license for SE or EE to use instead.I knew Oracle recommended SE or EE, but I didn't think it was free. I was planning to "get by" because I had only 1 host and 8 VMs.

Do you really mean that (as long as nothing is on it but OVMManager) I can use a dedicated SE instance on my OVM Manager machine [after making it a bit larger] with no requirement for a license? That would be great! I missed that day in Licensing class.
