Friday Spotlight: Oracle VM update 3.2.8 is now available through My Oracle Support

Oracle VM 3.2.8 can be downloaded from My Oracle Support by searching patch ID 16410428 for Oracle VM server and 16410417 for Oracle VM Manager. This patch update is a complete Oracle VM Server 3.2.8 installer ISO and Oracle VM Manager update ISO, and includes all the cumulative bug fixes that have been integrated since the Oracle VM 3.2.1 release. Oracle VM Server can also be updated from Oracle Unbreakable Linux Network (ULN).

We also provide a separate Oracle VM Server 3.2.8 ISO built with a newer kernel,  UEK2-400 (or more specifically kernel-uek-2.6.39-400.214.3.el5uek). The default kernel still remains UEK2-300 but in case a customer requires this newer kernel it is now also available through a support request.

For more details about this release and a list of the fixed bugs visit our Wiki. This update will be available for download from Oracle Software Delivery Cloud at a later date.

Hi, we already have a OVM Mgr 3.2.7 along with OVM Svr 3.2.7 running on existing env.

Q1) Should we decided to add another OVM Svr 3.2.8, can OVM Mgr 3.2.7 manage it? or it is must to install another set of OVM Svr 3.2.8 to manage it.

Q2) Another way to ask is, can OVM Mgr 3.2.8 manage a OVM Svr 3.2.7 Svr?

Appreciate a reply.

Hi Jony,
We recommend you use the same version of server and manager. The reason is that we test them as a pair and we have good confidence that they work well together.
Since this is a patch set and there are no additional features in 3.2.8 if 3.2.7 works well for you then should be ok continue running 3.2.7 until you need to upgrade your whole environment to the latest at that time.

Thanks,

Ronen
