Error "Internal Error (Operation) OVMAPI_8017E: [<Oracle VM Server hostname>] has a misconfigured network."

(Doc ID 2344260.1)

Last updated on JANUARY 01, 2018

Applies to:

Oracle VM - Version 3.4.1 and later
Linux x86-64

Symptoms

This note describes a very specific scenario about network setup in Oracle VM Manager GUI.

The Oracle VM server or servers has only one network object associated with 2 roles checked, namely "Management" and "Virtual Machine".

When you want to enable a 3rd role, either "Live Migration" or "Cluster Heartbeat" for the same network, you get below error:

"OVMAPI_8017E: [<Oracle VM Server hostname>] has a misconfigured network. [Fri Dec 27 21:38:50 EST 2017]"

 

And in Oracle VM Manager's AdminServer.log, below can been seen:
