Registering Oracle VM Manager with Oracle Enterprise Manager 13c (Oracle Private Cloud Appliance Software Version 2.3.1 and above)

As the Oracle PCA version 2.3.1 has Oracle VM Server 3.4.2, a tcps certificate is not required for registration with Oracle Enterprise Manager. Oracle VM Manager version 3.4 contains an internal Certificate Authority (CA) that is used to perform certificate-based authentication and to sign the SSL certificate that is used for the web-based user interface. Certificates are generated automatically upon the install of the Oracle PCA 2.3.1 software. The export and import of the Oracle VM Manager Weblogic certificate is required and detailed below.

For a new install of Oracle PCA software 2.3.1 and above, follow this procedure:

  • As the root user, and on the Oracle PCA active management node, export the Oracle VM Manager certificate

    /u01/app/oracle/ovm-manager-3/ovm_upgrade/bin/ exportca > /u01/app/oracle/ovm-manager-3/ws 
  • As the agent user, and on the Oracle PCA active management node, import the Oracle VM Manager certificate using password "welcome"

    /nfs/shared_storage/oemagent/agent_13. secure add_trust_cert_to_jks -trust_certs_loc /u01/app/oracle/ovm-manager-3/ws -alias ovmm 

To register Oracle VM Server 3.4.2 and above from the Oracle Enterprise Manager UI, follow these steps:

  1. From the Enterprise menu, select Cloud, then select Oracle VM Infrastructure Home.

  2. From the Infrastructure Cloud menu, select Register OVM Manager. The Add Oracle VM Manager page appears.

  3. Enter the Name for the Oracle VM Manager instance to be registered.

    For Example: PCA-OVMM

  4. Select the Management Agent to monitor and manage the Oracle VM Manager instance to be registered. Select the agent running on the management nodes.

  5. Enter the Oracle VM Manager URL.

    For example:

    - tcps:// (As tcps specification is not required for Oracle VM Manager 3.4.2 and later, enter a dummy URL such as tcps://here)

    Enter the Oracle VM Manager's Console URL. This is the URL to enable the VNC Console for the Guest VMs.

    The URL must be in the following format:


    By default, data from Oracle VM Manager is automatically synchronized with Enterprise Manager at fixed intervals of time. If you do not wish to enable this option, you must disable the Automatic Synchronization checkbox and manually synchronize the data. For more information on the automatic and manual synchronization options, refer to Synchronizing the Oracle VM Manager Targets for details.

  6. Enter the administrator user name and password to connect to the Oracle VM Manager URL provided in Step 5. If you want to use separate credentials for managing Oracle VM Manager, check the Use Administration Credentials check box. If you do not specify separate credentials, the monitoring credentials are used by default.

  7. Click Submit to register the Oracle VM Manager. You can now use the Oracle VM Manager to monitor and manage the virtualization targets in Enterprise Manager.
