Chapter 6 Create a Storage Repository

This figure shows the visual indicator that shows where you are in the tutorial. The Create a storage repository option is selected. This is step five of a seven step process.

A storage repository is where Oracle VM resources may reside on the storage you registered in Chapter 3, Discover Storage. Resources include virtual machines, templates for virtual machine creation, virtual machine virtual appliances, ISO files (DVD image files), shared virtual disks, and so on.

You use Oracle VM Manager to create and configure storage repositories, and to present one or more storage repositories to Oracle VM Servers. When the storage repository is accessible, you can start adding storage resources and building virtual machines with those resources.
