Chapter 1 Using Oracle VM Manager

Management for the Oracle VM environment is provided by Oracle VM Manager, a transaction-based framework that also includes an integrated database, a web-based management user interface and a command line interface.

This book discusses using the Oracle VM Manager Web Interface. In this chapter we discuss how to access the web-based user interface, the general design and layout of the application and generic behaviors that can be applied to each section of the application as you make use of it.

Notably, the web-based user interface includes additional logic to help ensure that actions performed within Oracle VM Manager do not result in configurations that could cause future runtime errors. This additional logic is not available within the command line interface, which provides greater flexibility but requires a deeper understanding of object relationships. The Oracle VM Manager Web Interface helps to guide users toward configuring an Oracle VM environment consistently and with minimal chance of error.
