The following prerequisites must be met before you can virtualize an Exalytics Machine:
The Exalytics Machine has been racked and mounted in a data center.
Oracle Integrated Lights Out Manager (ILOM) 220.127.116.11 or later, is configured to be accessible from the network using the web interface.
All networking information such as host name, IP address, subnet, gateway, and DNS are available.
Spare, unassigned IP addresses are available for the server pool and for each virtual machine deployed on the Exalytics Machine.
A Linux environment is available to install Oracle VM Manager.
You have access to the internet from a computer (not necessarily the Exalytics Machine) to download required software.
