3.6. Starting and Stopping Oracle VM Manager

When Oracle VM Manager is installed, it is set to automatically start when the operating system starts. If you want to disable this, enter:

# chkconfig ovmm off

If you chose to start Oracle XE manually during the installation, start Oracle XE before you start Oracle VM Manager.

To manually start or stop Oracle VM Manager, as the root user, use the syntax:

/sbin/service ovmm [start|stop|status]

For example, to start Oracle VM Manager:

# /sbin/service ovmm start

To stop Oracle VM Manager:

# /sbin/service ovmm stop

To check the status of Oracle VM Manager:

# /sbin/service ovmm status

The status option returns either a 0 or a 1. A 0 denotes the Oracle VM Manager application is running, and a 1 denotes the application is stopped.

If the Oracle VM Manager host computer runs a full graphical desktop environment, you can also use the Services dialog to start and stop Oracle VM Manager. From the Applications menu, select System Settings > Server Settings > Services. Or by running the following command in a terminal to use display Services dialog:

# /usr/bin/system-config-services

In the Service Configuration dialog, select ovmm to check the status, and start or stop it.
