Building an ODA for JDE–import vmtemplate

I’ve been back on the tools “big time”, building a JD Edwards environment on an ODA – a new FLASH based X6-2HA.  This is pretty exciting stuff (for a nerd like me).

Something interesting when installing VMs – which has been a little painful

you need to run

[root@sodax6-1 testing2]# oakcli import vmtemplate OL7U3 -assembly /OVS/Repositories/testing2/OVM_OL7U3_x86_64_PVHVM.ova -repo testing2 -node 0

Imported VM Template

This is being run from ODA_BASE, but you are specifying the location on DOM0 – WHAT???  Stupid hey?

You are on ODA_BASE and you do df –k:

[root@sodax6-1 testing2]# df -k
Filesystem            1K-blocks       Used  Available Use% Mounted on
/dev/xvda2             57191708   12601536   41684932  24% /

                       530579456  326606008  203973448  62% /u01/app/oracle/fast_recovery_area/datastore

but, from dom0

[root@sodax6-1dom0 testing2]# df -k
Filesystem           1K-blocks      Used Available Use% Mounted on
/dev/sda3             19840924   3543148  15273636  19% /

tmpfs                  1233052         0   1233052   0% /dev/shm
none                   1233052       112   1232940   1% /var/lib/xenstored
                      1048576000 298412224 750163776  29% /OVS/Repositories/testing
                      4194304000 1454788992 2739515008  35% /OVS/Repositories/testing2

Make sure that you reference your template like it’s “hung” off the DOM0 not ODA_BASE

See below, this is stealing a copy of the “JDE in a box” system disk from the JD Edwards templates.  Note that it’s not stealing, but you can get an older version of the OS this way.  note also that it needs to be a compressed tar ball to work.

[root@sodax6-1 testing2]# oakcli import vmtemplate EL58 -files /OVS/Repositories/testing2/e1_X86_sys_914.tgz -repo testing2 -node 0

A special note:

I used AWS S3 buckets as a temp location (instead of a VPN because of speed and configuration problems for the VPN).  I was able to get 50MB/sec download from the S3 bucket into the oracle data centre in Sydney –wow!  that is very impressive.
