3.3.2 Running the Oracle VM Manager Installer

To install Oracle VM Manager, change directory to the mount point where you have either mounted the DVD-ROM or where you have mounted the ISO file and start the installation by running the runInstaller script as the root user:


Please ensure that you have met the requirements outlined in Section 3.2, “Minimum Hardware and Software Requirements” before running the runInstaller.sh script.

# cd /mnt/cdrom
# ./runInstaller.sh

Substitute /mnt/cdrom with the path to the mount point where the DVD-ROM or ISO file is mounted on your own system.

A set of installer options are displayed:

Please select an installation type:
   1: Install
   2: Upgrade
   3: Uninstall
   4: Help

At the command prompt, enter 1 to perform the installation. If you already have Oracle VM Manager installed and want to upgrade it, select 2 to Upgrade. If you already have Oracle VM Manager installed and want to remove it, select 3 to Uninstall.

See Section, “Installation” for information on installing Oracle VM Manager.
