2.3.2 Oracle VM Database Repository

The Oracle VM Manager database is used by the Oracle VM Manager Server to store configuration information and event data. The actual database management server is a MySQL Enterprise database that is bundled with the Oracle VM Manager installer.

The MySQL database is set up using bundled database software included and licensed for use with Oracle VM Manager. The database management server is installed on the same system as Oracle VM Manager and is intended only for use by this application. Particular configuration parameters specific to the requirements of Oracle VM Manager are applied to this installation.

Details on the installation of the database are covered in the Oracle VM Installation and Upgrade Guide, while database backups are explained in more detail in Oracle VM Administrator's Guide.
