Oracle OL: How To Determine Which VM Template Was Used To Implement A VM Guest. (Doc ID 2066555.1)

Last updated on OCTOBER 16, 2015

Applies to:

Oracle VM - Version 3.0.1 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

It is possible to determine which template a VM has been created from based on an analysis of the ovs-agent log file.

The corresponding ovs-agent log is located in /var/log/ on the server on which the virtual machine was originally created  from the template.  In a default setup, the /var/log/ovs-agent.log is never rotated, so if  the VM was created relatively long ago that shouldn't matter for this note.
