Today, we are proud to announce the general availability of Oracle VM 3 templates for Oracle Secure Global Desktop version 4.62.
With Oracle VM 3 templates, anyone using Oracle VM 3 need not download, install and configure the supported operating system and the Oracle product(s) individually. In this case, the supported operating system (Oracle Linux 5.7), and the Oracle Secure Global Desktop 4.62 product is packaged together into a template that one can easily import and clone from as a virtual machine in Oracle VM 3. This results in a nearly instant deployment and configuration of Oracle Secure Global Desktop within Oracle VM 3.
This means drastically reducing the evaluation and deployment time for Oracle Secure Global Desktop when leveraging Oracle VM 3. Feel free to give it a try!

Download any of the above templates. Once you are done, you must
- First import the assembly (ova) file that you downloaded from Oracle Software Delivery Cloud
- Next, create a virtual machine template from the assembly
- And finally create a virtual machine from the template.
Once the virtual machine is created and starts up, make sure you enter the networking parameters (hostname, IP address, netmask, gateway etc), and optional user parameters correctly. You must also enter a root password during first boot. And that's it - the Oracle Secure Global Desktop install script will automatically pick up the networking parameters, prompt for confirmation and complete a default installation.
Once the installation is complete, you may want to refer to the Oracle Secure Global Desktop Administration Guide to learn more about Oracle Secure Global Desktop and its capabilities.
