Oracle Database Running on Oracle Linux Imported into an Oracle VM Environment. June 11, 2012,
Volume 172, Issue 2
Because Oracle VM Templates provide a good way to distribute Oracle technologies to an Oracle VM environment -- making it easy for you to get up and running quickly -- Yuli Vasiliev has writte3n an OTN post, How to use Oracle VM templates, that describes how to prepare an Oracle VM environment to use Oracle VM Templates; how to obtain a template; and how to deploy the template to your Oracle VM environment. The article also describes how to create a virtual machine based on that template and how to clone the template and change the clone's configuration. Vasiliev uses the example of a template for Oracle Database that contains two disk images: an Oracle Linux system image and an Oracle Database image. In the course of the procedure Vasiliev demonstrates the downloading of the template containing Oracle Database running on Oracle Linux and then imported it into an Oracle VM environment. Vasiliev also shows how one might clone the template to create a new virtual machine or a new template with different configuration.
