Upgrade Oracle VM Server to 3.2.6


ovm_start

Hello, in this short example i will show you how to upgrade Oracle VM Server to version 3.2.6.

Oracle VM Server 3.2.6 build 729 has been validated with Oracle VM Manager 3.2.6 build 726.

Notable bugs fixed in Oracle VM Server 3.2.6 build 729 are:

  • Updated Xen package to 4.1.3-25.el5.53.
  • Updated Dom0 kernel to 2.6.39-300.32.4.el5uek.
  • 16453997 – Fixes an issue where OVMWATCH reports the wrong UUID on live migration.
  • 16906289 – Fixes an issue where the Oracle VM Server installer detects a network interface incorrectly.
  • 16986472 – Fixes an issue where HVM virtual machines in an OVF assembly have a limit of four virtual disks.

Download Patch 16410428 which to the latest Oracle VM Server Update.

After you have downloaded the patch place it on your HTTP Server

In my case is have a Linux Apache Server and extracted the Patch under the DocumentRoot. The Patch consist of a ISO Image so mount it with the loop Option to made it avaible.

Example

mount -o loop ./OVS-3.2.6-729.iso /var/www/html/repo/latest/ovm

Login into you Oracle VM Manager and go to Tools and Resources. Validate that you have a correct information for you Update Information.

The YUM repository is checked for updates every 6 hours, so there may be a delay between the YUM repository being updated and the notification being displayed in Oracle VM Manager.

In my case i did not update the OVM from the Manager. Instead i login to the Oracle VM Server (make sure that the Server is ready for update) and start the update directly.

[root@server01 etc]# yum update
