Announcing Oracle VM Manager CLI 2.2

We are pleased to announce that Oracle VM Manager Command Line Interface (CLI) 2.2 has been released to Oracle Unbreakable Linux Network (ULN) and Oracle's Public Yum Repository.

The Oracle VM Manager CLI 2.2 is the updated version to work with newly released Oracle VM Manager 2.2, and it can also work with Oracle VM Manager 2.1.5. The CLI is written in Python and uses the Oracle VM Manager Web Services API to communicate with Oracle VM Manager. You can use the CLI to perform the same functions as Oracle VM Manager, such as managing all your server pools and guests. The CLI commands can be scripted, thus bring more flexibility to help customers deploy and manage Oracle VM environment.

1. Download required RPMs from ULN or Oracle's Public Yum Repository.


ULN Channel / Public Yum Repository
ovmcli-2.2-9.el5.noarch.rpm el5_i386_oracle_addons and el5_x86_64_oracle_addons

el5_i386_addons and el5_x86_64_addons

2. Install the RPMs onto a server running Oracle Linux 5:

# rpm -Uvh ovmcli-2.2-9.el5.noarch.rpm python-ZSI-2.1-a1.el5.noarch.rpm

3. Configure CLI by running "ovm config". The user will be asked for the following information:

- Oracle VM Manager hostname

- Oracle VM Manager port number

- Deploy path (use default)

- Location of vncviewer (required for vncviewer command)

- Enable or disable HTTPS support (depends on Oracle VM Manager setup)

4. Oracle VM Manager CLI is now ready for use. Just type the command "ovm". For example,

# ovm help
# ovm help all
# ovm -u admin -p password svrp ls
# ovm -u admin -p password shell
