If you have issues on deploying Peoplesoft OVM on Oracle VM which is designed for, then it won't be simpler on VMWare which is not designed for.
It would probably be much easier to fix the issues you may have on Oracle VM.
I started importing templates last night at 5:00 PM and its almost 11:00 am and its still not done. Right now its unpacking the templates. Its supposed to be challenging not burdensome. Any suggestions..
This is a non-issue. It mainly depends of disk, network speed/configuration. Is the OVS stored locally ? How are you importing the templates (http,iso...) ?
It worked prety fine for me within 1Gb network within OVS on a remote NAS server, oh well import from iso files takes only a couple of hours.
I understand network/speed and configuration. Its on GB network. I'm importing templates using Http. The manager is installed on a vmware VM. Does Manager needs to be on a physical box?. Any suggestions.
