Recently I upgraded my Oracle VM Manager from 3.0.1 to 3.0.2.
This blog entry will outline the upgrade steps and also
attach some of results of the each step:
1. Download the Oracle VM Manager 3.0.2 upgrade software

2. unzip V28586-01_ovm_mgr_3.0.2_x84_64.zip to
ovmm-3.0.2-upgrade-b73.iso file and copy the iso file to
Oracle VM manager server
3. Mount the iso file to as a CD image as the root user:
mkdir /OVMUP
mount -o loop ovmm-3.0.2-upgrade-b73.iso /OVMUP
4. Do a full database backup of the Oracle VM repository
database
5. As the root user, ensure the Oracle VM Manager is running:
