6.1.3 Cannot Create OVS Database Schema

The Oracle VM Manager install may fail and display the following message:

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

You can check the log file at /tmp/ovmm-installer.selfextract_id/ovm-manager-3-install-date.log for more detailed information.

Possible workarounds for this issue are:

  1. Make sure that MySQL has installed correctly. Use the following command to check the status:

    $ /etc/init.d/ovmm_mysql status

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

  2. Reinstall Oracle VM Manager.
