System Requirements for Oracle VM

Commvault supports Oracle VM Manager 3.3.1.x or later.

Only Oracle VM Server for x86 is supported.


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

  • Windows Server 2008 R2
  • Windows Server 2012 R2
  • 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.
  • UNIX 7.x proxies can attach a maximum of four disks, including any disks configured for the proxy.

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.

Port Requirements

When the Oracle VM Manager environment includes a firewall, ensure that CVD port 8400 is configured to accept incoming traffic from Commvault.
