Installation and Configuration

To deploy Oracle Linux Virtualization Manager, you install and configure the engine on an Oracle Linux 7 Update 7 host, configure KVM hosts, storage, and networks, and create virtual machines.

This section walks you through installing and configuring the engine host and the KVM host(s) that you use for virtual machines. Ensure you thoroughly review the Requirements and Scalability Limits because the requirements for the engine host are different than the KVM hosts.

Note

To review conceptual information and help to plan your installation, see the Oracle Linux Virtualization Manager: Architecture and Planning Guide.
