The following features of Oracle Linux Virtualization Manager are currently still under development, but are made available to you for testing and evaluation purposes.
Oracle Linux Virtualization Manager
- Automate configuring of Oracle Linux Virtualization Manager using the Ansible roles
provided in the
- Data warehouse service and history database and engine database installation or migration to a separate host.
- Full sampling scale for data warehouse.
- Dashboard migration to a separate host.
- Additional functionality to the Admin Portal through custom user interface plugins.
- External providers that provide external resources to Oracle Linux Virtualization Manager.
engine-configcommand (the Engine Configuration Tool) changes to global configuration settings for Oracle Linux Virtualization Manager.
- USB Filter Editor used to create the
usbfilter.txtpolicy file for filtering USB devices on Windows client devices.
- Quotas and service level agreements to control access to resources.
- Custom hooks to extend the functionality of the host agent (VDSM).
- Configuring additional internal local user domains for Oracle Linux Virtualization Manager.
- External directory server apart from Active Directory and OpenLDAP Standard Schema (options 3 and 9 when you use the
- Users log in automatically to the Administration Portal or VM Portal using the credentials obtained from a Kerberos or LDAP server (single sign-on).
- moVirt Android client for the Oracle Linux Virtualization Manager.
- Federal Information Processing Standard (FIPS) compliance support, which you can enable selectively, on specific VMs and bare metal machines, or across environment.
- CPU quality of service (QoS) entries to control the amount processing capability virtual machines can access on hosts.
- Trusted compute pools to deploy virtual machines on clusters that use Intel Trusted Execution Technology (Intel TXT).
- Existing Gluster storage cluster.
- GPU passthrough that attaches host GPUs directly to virtual machines.
- Host network interfaces configured to use
ethtoolor Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE) custom properties.
- PCI network cards attached directly to virtual machines (PCI passthrough or SR-IOV).
- Network bonds that use bond modes 0 (round-robin policy), 2 (XOR policy), 3 (broadcast policy), and 5 (adaptive transmit load balancing policy).
- Host quality of service entries that to control the bandwidth a logical network uses on a physical interface.
- Virtual machine quality of service entries to control to the input/output of VNICs.
- External network providers, including the Open Virtual network (OVN) provider.
- Network security groups provided by the OpenStack Neutron service.
- Networks and interfaces managed with the Cisco Unified Computing System (UCS).
- Wipe after delete functionality to zero out used blocks in virtual disks.
- Storage quality of service (QoS) entries to control the maximum throughput and I/O operations for virtual disks in a storage domain.
- Disk profiles to define the maximum throughput and I/O for virtual disks in a storage domain.
- POSIX-compliant file system support to allow access to storage not exposed using NFS, iSCSI, or FCP.
Virtual Machines (Guests)
- Seal and automate the initialization of Windows guests using
- Automatic installs of guest additions in Windows guests using the Application Provisioning Tool (APT).
- User log in automatically to Linux virtual machines using their Oracle Linux Virtualization Manager credentials (single sign-on).
- User log in automatically to virtual machines using the credentials obtained from a Kerberos or LDAP server (single sign-on).
- Host devices directly attached to virtual machines, including SCSI devices such as disks, PCI devices such as NICs and GPUs, and USB devices such as webcams (passthrough or SR-IOV).
- Virtual machine authentication using smart cards on client devices (smart card authentication).
- Multiple displays with virtual machines.
- Remote access to USB devices on Windows client devices using the
usbdkdriver (USB redirection).
- Virtual NUMA nodes configured on virtual machines and pinned them to NUMA nodes on a physical host.
- SAP monitoring in virtual machines enabled through the Administration Portal.
