Important

Oracle does not support Oracle Linux Virtualization Manager on systems where the ol7_preview, ol7_developer, ol7_developer_kvm_utils, or ol7_developer_EPEL repositories are enabled, or where software from these repositories is currently installed on the systems where the Manager will run. Even if you follow the instructions in this document, you may render your platform unsupported if these repositories or channels are enabled or software from these channels or repositories is installed on your system.
