2.3.1 Installing the Oracle VM Utilities on Oracle VM Manager

When installing Oracle VM Utilities on the same server as Oracle VM Manager, it is recommended that you put them in the software directory of the Oracle VM Manager application. The Oracle VM Utilities are bundled in a .zip archive. To install, simply download the archive and extract in the appropriate directory.

In the example below, we have already downloaded the .zip file and show how to copy the .zip file into the installation directory, where it is unzipped.

# cp ovm_utils_archive.zip /u01/app/oracle/ovm-manager-3/
# cd /u01/app/oracle/ovm-manager-3
# unzip ovm_utils_archive.zip

At this point, the command line scripts are ready to use. Note that these scripts execute a Java program and use the default Java VM on the host computer. On the Oracle VM Manager host, the appropriate Java VM is installed as part of the Oracle VM Manager application in /u01/app/oracle/java. No further configuration is required.
