Introduction

Welcome to the Oracle Technology Network Sysadmin Day – Oracle VM Hands-on lab installation instructions. This is a use-your-own-laptop workshop. The instructions below describes system and software requirements you must have installed, prior to attending the lab. This document will outline requirements for each of the 3 Oracle VM hands-on labs and instructions to set up your environment including instructions on setting up your VM appliance prior to attending the lab.

Reminder: Oracle VM VirtualBox

Oracle VM VirtualBox is a free and widely used desktop virtualization tool. It is installed on an X86 operating system (OS). VirtualBox is available on all the majors X86 OS (Windows XP, Windows 7, Windows xx, many Linux distributions, Apple MacOS and Solaris 10 & 11).

NOTE:

Actual use and deployment of Oracle VM and installing Oracle VM Server is to boot from an ISO file/CDrom and does not require the use of Oracle VM VirtualBox.

Here, for purposes of simplifying a lab environment and due to time constraint, we use the Oracle VM VirtualBox software appliance to save time. 

Please note that the Oracle VM VirtualBox appliance is for testing purposes only, as such it is unsupported and should not to be used in production environment.
