    COuld you please clarify if VirtualBox 4.0.10 can run Oracle VM templates. I saw a comment from you dated May 2010 (on another blog entry) where you mentioned " The current generation of Oracle VM templates will not run on VirtualBox because they tend to use a modified (paravirtualized) Linux kernel"

    Really appreciate your efforts. Many thanks

    It depends on the OracleVM template.

    If it is a PV template, no.

    If it is a HVM template, maybe, but you have to do some work (the opposite of this http://blogs.oracle.com/wim/entry/converting_an_oracle_vm_virtua


    And just to be clear, VM templates on VirtualBox are not supported in production.
