Oracle VM: System Requirements

Install the Virtual Server Agent on a virtual machine in the Oracle VM Manager environment. The following virtual machine types are supported for VSA proxies:

  • Microsoft Windows Server 2016 Editions
  • Microsoft Windows Server 2012 R2 Editions
  • Oracle Linux 6.x, 7.x
  • RHEL 6.x, 7.x
  • CentOS 6.x, 7.x


  • Both Windows and UNIX proxies must be based on OVM domain type Xen HVM PV drivers.
  • Windows proxy machines should be installed with Oracle VM Windows PV drivers version 2.3.2 or later.
  • For Linux proxies, disable lvmetad.

Only virtual machines that have the VSA installed can act as VSA proxies to perform backups and restores.

At least one proxy is needed.

If a VM resides on a shared repository, the proxy VM must reside on the same repository.
