Oracle is very strict when it comes to using their software on virtualization software. If you want to license only part of your VM setup, the only option available is to use Oracle VM. But setting up and managing an Oracle VM farm is no sinecure. Fortunately using our ovm_config Puppet module, the process of setting up, adding and removing VM's and another setup, has become very easy.

This module allows you to manage averything there is to manage in an Oracle VM setup. For example you can manage: VM pools, repositories, VM's and Virtual disks. Using this module you can create a puppet description of your Oracle VM setup and manage it like a pro.


This is a commercially licensed module. But you can use the module on VirtualBox based development systems for FREE. When used on real systems a license is required.

You can license our modules in multiple ways. Our basic licensing model requires a subscription per node. But contact us for details.

Check the License for details.

-ovm_archive_management -ovm_backup_management -ovm_cpu -ovm_ethernet_port -ovm_event_management -ovm_file_server -ovm_file_server_plugin -ovm_file_system -ovm_file_system_mount -ovm_job_management -ovm_log_management -ovm_mac_management -ovm_manager -ovm_network -ovm_repository -ovm_server -ovm_server_pool -ovm_statistic_management -ovm_storage_array -ovm_storage_array_plugin -ovm_storage_element -ovm_storage_target -ovm_tag -ovm_virtual_disk -ovm_virtual_nic -ovm_vlan_interface -ovm_vm

Installing the ovm_config module

To install these modules, you can use a Puppetfile

mod 'enterprisemodules/ovm_config'               ,'1.0.x'

Then use the librarian-puppet or r10K to install the software.

You can also install the software using the puppet module command:

puppet module install enterprisemodules-ovm_config


Building a total Oracle VM setup requires quite some work. To help you get started, we have built an example.
