3.12.4. Cannot Create OVS Database Schema

You may encounter the following message:

Creating the Oracle VM Manager database schema ... Failed.

You can check the log file at /tmp/ovmm-installer.selfextract_id/install-date.log for more detailed information.

Workaround: Possible workarounds for this issue are:

  1. Make sure that Oracle XE is not installed, or has installed correctly. Use the following command to check the status:

    $ /etc/init.d/oracle-xe status

    If an Oracle XE is running, run the Oracle VM Manager installation script to uninstall it, and reinstall Oracle VM Manager.

  2. If you are installing into an existing Oracle XE database, make sure that you have entered the correct password for the SYS account.

  3. Reinstall Oracle VM Manager.
