It may be crucial to have a serial console setup if nothing relevant / useful are being dumped into /var/log/messages or into other logs. Still, there is another method called Netconsole (See <Document 793684.1>). If netconsole is not feasible or possible, you may still need the option of a serial console.
In principle, the serial console configuration for Oracle VM 2.2 is not much different from a generic serial console setup for Linux OS described in <Document 228204.1>. Due to some different default setup in Oracle VM from Oracle Linux 5, the configuration steps needs to be slightly different.
