Friday Spotlight: Oracle VM Templates for Oracle E-Business Suite Release 12.2.2 are Now Available

Happy Friday everyone!

Congratulations to the Oracle E-Business Suite team for bringing us another update to the Oracle VM Templates family. The Oracle VM Templates for Oracle E-Business Suite facilitate rapid deployment of ready-to-run Oracle E-Business Suite that can be used for demonstration, development and/or production. As with all other Oracle VM Templates for Oracle’s applications, the Oracle VM Templates for E-Business Suite come fully pre-configured with Oracle Linux as the guest OS along with all the required technology components.

You can deploy these templates on any industry-standard x86-based hardware certified for Oracle VM and Oracle Linux (listed here).

An Oracle E-Business Suite Release 12.2.2 installation requires two templates, one for the database and one for the primary application tier.   You can choose from two database templates, depending on whether you will deploy a Vision demonstration system or an empty production instance.  In addition to the database template and the primary application tier template, you can optionally deploy a "sparse middle tier" template to add secondary application tiers.

Visit Steve Chan’s blog for more information on the new Oracle E-Business Suite Templates.

  • For more information on Oracle VM Manager and Oracle VM Server, refer to the Oracle VM Documentation Library.
  • For information on Oracle E-Business Suite Release 12.2, refer to the Oracle E-Business Suite Release 12.2 Information Center (Doc ID 1581299.1).

New Oracle VM Templates

We released several new Oracle VM Templates this week. They are Oracle VM Manager 2.2, Oracle VM Server 2.2 SDK, and Oracle VM Server 2.1.5 SDK.


Oracle VM template is a fully pre-installed, pre-configured virtual machine that can be downloaded onto an installed Oracle VM server. An Oracle VM Template may include a single virtual machine, with a single Oracle product such as a single-instance database or WebLogic Server or multiple VMs with multiple Oracle products to facilitate rapid deployment of even the most complex composite applications such as E-Business Suite, JD Edwards EnterpriseOne, PeopleSoft HCM, or Siebel CRM.

Oracle VM Manager 2.2 template is intended to be installed on a new Oracle VM 2.2 server; If you have a new Oracle VM 2.1.5 server and want to deploy Oracle VM Manager template, you can use the Oracle VM 2.1.5 Manager template. With the Oracle VM Manager template, you can quickly set up the Oracle VM Manager to manage the Oracle VM server environment.

The Oracle VM Server SDK Template provides an environment for third party drivers to be built for the Oracle VM server 2.2 or 2.1.5. This environment is being provided because the Oracle VM dom0 (management domain) only contains a minimum set of packages, and it does not provide the additional development packages needed for building modules. 

Oracle VM Templates are downloaded from Oracle's E-Delivery website: Just download and copy the software images onto your server that has Oracle VM installed on it, import and deploy the Template VM(s) and, after answering some one-time queries relating to the customer's desired environment (DHCP or static IP, passwords, etc.) within minutes you will have a fully installed and configured Oracle environment that you know is completely correct without having to install products from scratch. In most cases, deployment times for complex applications can be reduced from weeks to hours.

For more details about how you can benefit from Oracle VM Templates or start to build you own templates, please visit Oracle VM Templates web site:
