|Sun Blade X6275 M2 Server Module Installation Guide for Oracle VM Operating Systems|
Two systems with static IP addresses are required to install Oracle VM: one system to run Oracle VM Server, and one to run Oracle VM Manager.
For the system that will be running Oracle VM Server, you must start out with a clean installation that has no preinstalled OS or firmware-level RAID volumes.
The system that will be running Oracle VM Manager must have one of the following OSes installed:
Oracle Linux Release 4.5 or later
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Release 4 or later
Oracle VM media set or an equivalent ISO image. The ISO image can be used for remote installation or for creating an installation CD/DVD.
Review the release notes for the Oracle VM software. The documentation set can be found at: http://download.oracle.com/docs/cd/E15458_01/index.htm
Note - If you are installing remotely, the DVD-ROM drive, keyboard, mouse, and monitor are connected to the remote system instead of the server. Also, if you are installing remotely, you can use an ISO image instead of an actual CD/DVD.
USB keyboard and mouse.
While configuring an operating system for a networked server, it might be necessary to provide the logical names (assigned by the OS) and the physical name (MAC address) of each network interface being used on the Oracle VM Server.
