Before You Begin

If you are installing Oracle VM Server on an Oracle server, you can use Oracle Integrated Lights Out Manager (ILOM) to install software using either a CD/ DVD or an ISO image mounted on a remote system. The remote console feature allows you to use the keyboard, mouse, video, and storage of the remote system as if it were connected to the server where you are installing the operating system. After the remote console session is configured, the server can boot from the remotely mounted distribution media (either a CD/DVD or equivalent ISO file).

  1. On a server running a supported operating system, insert and mount the Oracle VM Manager CD.

    For supported operating system information, refer to the Oracle VM Manager installation documentation at:

  2. Navigate to the root of the CD and run the following script:

    # sh

    Note - If you are not already the root user, use the su command and enter the root password to give yourself the necessary privileges to launch the install script.

  3. Follow the prompts to install the software.
