Oracle Linux 7 installation in five easy steps!

Simon Coter
Senior Manager, Oracle Linux and Virtualization Product Management

Very quick demonstration of the powerful capabilities of Oracle VM VirtualBox with Vagrant.

With just 5 quick and easy steps, get an Oracle Linux 7 Virtual Machine up and running:

  • Install Oracle VM VirtualBox for your own host Operating System - download available here
  • Install HashiCorp Vagrant for your own host Operating System - download available here
  • Download the Oracle Linux 7 Vagrant Box​ (by a terminal on Linux/MacOS or PowerShell on Microsoft Windows)
# vagrant box add --name ol76 https://yum.oracle.com/boxes/oraclelinux/ol76/ol76.box

  • Create your VagrantFile
# vagrant init ol76

  • Start your Oracle Linux 7 Vagrant Box (Virtual Machine running on VirtualBox)
# vagrant up

And, once the Virtual Machine is ready, just connect to the same by

# vagrant ssh

and, if needed, switch user to root by:

# sudo su -
