Oracle Enterprise Linux 5.4 Installation Setting on Sun Virtual Box
This in post i share my experience of installing Oracle Enterprise Linux 5.4 on Sun VirtualBox. Sun VirtualBox is freely available on their website you can download it free of cost. Sun VirtualBox is Presently, runs on Windows, Linux, Macintosh and OpenSolaris hosts and supports a large number of guest operating systems including but not limited to Windows (NT 4.0, 2000, XP, Server 2003, Vista, Windows 7), DOS/Windows 3.x, Linux (2.4 and 2.6), Solaris and OpenSolaris, and OpenBSD.
I have downloaded the VirtualBox 3.1.2 for Windows hosts and Install it on WindowXp.
As you seen in 1st screen shot i have already installed Redhat, SuSe Linux and XP on Sun Virtual Box. Now i am planning to Install Oracle Enterprise Linux 5.4 on Virtual Machine. For that click on New Button for the creation of new virtual machine.
In the 2nd Screen Shot define the name of machine on Name Field and select the type of OS from drop down list.
In the 3rd Screen Shot define the size of Base Memory. I have 2GB Physical Memory on my PC thats way i define 560MB for Virtual Machine.
In the 4th Screen Shot create a Hard Disk for new Virtual Machine. The recommended size of the boot hard disk is 8GB.
In the 5th Screen Shot click next button to create virtual Hard Disk.
In the 6th Screen Shot select the location from where you want to create your Virtual Machine Hard Disk. You can also increase or decrease the size of your Virtual Hard Disk.
I select E:\ partition from my Hard Disk to create the new Hard Disk for Virtual Machine. For that purpose you must carte first .VirtualBox folder in your desired location from where you want to create Virtual Hard Disk.
8th Screen Shot shows Summary.
In the 9rd Screen Shot your setting is almost compete to install Oracle Enterprise Linux.
Before we start the installation we confirm that CD/DVD is mounted if not then click on Mount CD/DVD Drive check box from the Setting.
In General field select Advance tab and change the Snapshot Folder from C:\ drive to any other Drive. I do this because i have only 10GB on my C:\ Drive and after the installation of Oracle Enterprise Linux i would like to Install Oracle Database 11g R2 on Oracle Enpterprise Linux on Virtual Machine.
After all setting done insert OEL 5.4 DVD in to DVD Rom and click on Start Button.
The installation process is same as i done in my previous post on RedHat 5 Installation Screen Shot. Therefore i just only share Starting images of Oracle Enpterprise Linux 5.4 Screen Shots.
