Chapter 2 Installing Oracle VM Server

This chapter discusses the installation requirements and procedures for the installation of Oracle VM Server. Since the deployment of Oracle VM Server is significantly different on x86 hardware to deployment on SPARC hardware, this chapter is divided into two primary sections, to discuss the requirements and procedure specific to each hardware platform.

Before performing an installation of Oracle VM Server it is highly recommended that you review the preinstallation tasks and requirements for your chosen platform. Failure to meet requirements may result in install failure, or could render an installation unusable.
