Pre-Conference Setup Instructions - Database Track Hands-On Labs

This document describes how to install a virtual guest appliance that provides pre-configured Oracle software and lab exercises for your use during the Hands-on Labs. 

This one virtualbox image contains all the software and guides you need for the Database Track Hands-on Labs.
The image is around 4.7GB compressed (nee image being posted soon will update size after it is posted), so you should download VirtualBox and import the image  before the event starts.

Please note that this virtualbox appliance is for testing purposes only, as such it is unsupported and should not to be used in production environment.
This virtual machine contains:

  • Oracle Linux 6
  • Oracle Database 12c Release 1 Enterprise Edition with Multitenant
  • Oracle TimesTen In-Memory Database Cache
  • Oracle XML DB
  • Oracle SQL Developer 4.0
  • Oracle SQL Developer Data Modeler 4.0
  • Oracle Application Express 4.2
  • Oracle APEX Listener 2.0.5
  • Hands-On-Labs


Step 1. Download and install Oracle VM VirtualBox on your host system.
(Note: virtualization works best with contiguous space so it is a good idea if on Windows to run a defrag program, and make sure you are using NTFS for your file system to handle large files on Windows. ).

Step 2. Follow the link below and agree to the OTN license agreement and download the OVA file:

[Oracle Developer Day Image]

Step 3. Import your VM: File > Import Appliance to launch Appliance Import Wizard. Click Choose... to browse to the directory you downloaded in and select the Oracle_Developer_Days.ova then click Next> to begin importing the virtual machine. It will prompt you to agree to the appropriate developer licenses while importing. You will see 'Oracle Developer Days (Powered Off)' when it is finished importing.

Step 4. Test your VM: Once the import has completed, double-click the Oracle Developer Days VM. Click OK to close the Virtualbox Information dialogs. When you get to the Enterprise Linux 5 screen you can now login. (Username and password is oracle.) Allow the process to complete; it is ready when you see a terminal window, which you can close. Once you are finished working in the guest VM you can shut it down via System > Shut Down; this will return the guest VM to the Powered Off state.

If you have any questions about this process, please post a message to OTN's Virtualization Discussion Forum (use hashtag "developerday").

    Any ETA for the Database tracks for next Tuesday's Developer Days sessions?

  2. Feb 03, 2014


    The web page is not updated but the instructions [https://wikis.oracle.com/download/attachments/2392075/vboxinstructions.pdf ] have a working link to Download the ' Oracle_Developer_Day.ova ' file.

    The tool is not letting me post the file link . 



  3. Feb 03, 2014


    That link goes to a 11.2 oracle database vm.  It's not the 12c version for the lab tomorrow.

  4. Feb 03, 2014

  5. Feb 03, 2014

    The Image is now available for download, it's been updated to have the 12c Multitenant environment and supporting software and labs.

  6. Feb 03, 2014

    Thanks Guys,

    Now got it. see you tomorrow.



  7. Feb 04, 2014

      You must be seeing a cached page, try forcing a hard refresh.

    For the Oracle 12c  DBA track which is the correct OVA file

    Oracle_Developer_Day.ova     (or)    OTN_Developer_Day_VM.ova

    1. Feb 04, 2014

      OTN_Developer_Day_VM.ova (5,215,947,264 bytes, md5sum: 4e8ef75cdbd0fbe3d3beee8f873b2d4a)

  9. Feb 04, 2014

    To take the  track Oracle 12c DBA the only thing that I need is download and import the appliance ?  (OTN_Developer_Day_VM.ova )

  10. Feb 05, 2014

    The pre-configured Developer Day VM appears to be a 64-bit machine. Is there a version available that will run on 32-bit CPUs?

  11. Mar 06, 2014

    Any word on a 32-bit version of OTN_Developer_Day_VM.ova ?

    1. Mar 07, 2014

      There is no 32 bit version of Database 12c, so that's kind of a deal-breaker.

    Facing trouble with download.

    The file is huge in size and  i am trying to download but facing the below errors.

    Session timeout/ authentication failed/ link not valid errors in mid of the download.

  13. May 05, 2014

    When I import OTN_Developer_Day_VM i get a error compressed image is corrupted.(veer_zip_corrupted).

    I have dowloaded Oracle Linux with Oracle 12c using OTN developer day.

    But i am unable to login as Admin to the oracle 12c.

    How to gain the admin access and credentials for the same.

    1. Aug 13, 2014

      There is no 'admin' you have oracle and root OS accounts - the passwords for both are 'oracle'

      All of the database accounts have passwords 'oracle' as well.
