Prerequisites for Configuring Exalytics Machines for Virtualization

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) 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.
