A storage repository is used to store virtual machine resources, so that these resources can be made available to Oracle VM Servers in a server pool, without having to copy the resources to each Oracle VM Server. The Oracle VM Servers in a server pool gain access to these virtual machine resources by having the storage repository presented to them. If your storage is file-based storage, you can present a storage repository to multiple server pools. Alternatively, if your storage is physical disk-based, you can only present the storage repository to a single server pool.
A storage repository is essentially logical disk space made available through a file system on top of physical storage hardware. If the storage repository is created on a file server, for example an NFS share, then a file system is already present; if the repository is created on a LUN, an OCFS2 file system is first created.
This document describes how to present a storage repository from one pool to another at Oracle VM Manager
