ISO images will be available shortly from http://edelivery.oracle.com. If there is an urgent need to get the ISOs through My Oracle Support, simply file a service request.
Release notes are here.
The past couple of weeks I have been dealing with a fairly aggravating issue at home. My wife has a Windows 7 laptop which for some reason started printing everything repeatedly (repeatedly being defined as forever and ever until the bottom of the paper tray was found). Our printer in particular is a HP Laserjet 1022n which is connected to the network, and my wife’s computer connects via the network directly (as in not using any print server to mediate the jobs). When this was occurring and looking at the print queue I was seeing the one job, however the job kept flashing (or perhaps bli
I personally use Crashplan for my cloud based backups (I have for over a year). I use them because they are one of a few (to be honest the only one) who actually have Solaris installers. The one downside of this is that they do not start the CrashPlanEngine by default (as a service). However when using the Service Management Framework in Solaris this is really easy to handle yourself… For more details how to handle the SMF portion refer to my article “
Lately I have been going through an exercise of migrating all of my current services into Solaris 11 (more specifically a zone). I have already been using similar technology on the Linux side, I use OpenVZ with a mix of Linux distributions. However I would like to take advantage of ZFS and get a little more simplicity in management.
Recently, I had the pleasure of spending some time on the phone with John Renko, consulting developer in the desktop virtualization group here at Oracle. You might know him from his fantastic answers to many of our Friday Tips questions.
Get the most from the efficiency and performance of your virtual machines by taking the Oracle VM Administration: Oracle VM Server for x86 training course.
This three day course teaches students to build a virtualization platform using the Oracle VM Manager and Oracle VM Server for x86. You learn how deploy and manage highly configurable, inter-connected virtual machines. The course teaches how to:
The programmatic way to extend Oracle VM Template Configure is to build your own module.
To write your own module, you have to build an RPM that contains a configure script in a specific format, let's go through the steps to do this.
Oracle VM template configure works very similar to the init.d and chkconfig script model. For template config we have the /etc/template.d directory, all the scripts go into /etc/template.d/scripts. Then symlinks are made to other subdirectories based on the type of target the scripts provide. At this point we handle configure and cleanup.
Using the Oracle VM Message API for your own applications...
There are two ways to communicate through the APIs, a quick and easy one and a more comprehensive one.
The quick and easy method of just sending and receiving messages.
