ODA: Guest Is Hung on VNC Client Connection (Doc ID 2374498.1)

Last updated on JUNE 02, 2022

Applies to:

Oracle VM - Version 3.2.7 and later
Oracle Cloud Infrastructure - Version N/A and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


Import a template to ODA, and add "vnclisten = ''" to vm.cfg.

After starting this VM, tried to access using tightvnc with <dom0-ip>:5901 but guest OS is stuck on VNC client connection.

You may get a black screen, or sometimes the screen is just stuck with Linux bootup messages.

On Oracle VM server (dom0), 'xm list' shows the guest is already started.


This is a new setup.
