I'm running Ubuntu 12.04, just started using Oracle Virtual Box and installed a Windows XP machine. Should I install an anti-virus for the virtual Windows XP machine?
Is it better to install Ubuntu or Windows first? Will I need to install an anti virus in Ubuntu for Windows virus? If I install Windows first,Do I need to format Windows partition or Ubuntu takes part of the disc and formats in Ext4? Thank you.
I'm new to Oracle Virtual box but have used VMware several times.
I have a client that is now running a Windows xp virtual machine on his main machine to access a piece of bespoke software that will not run on a newer OS than XP 32bit. He has another PC of which he would like to be able to access the virtual machine from.
Can this be achieved? Do I need to use bridge mode within virtual box?
I have a Windows 7 and Ubuntu 12.04 installed on my machine.
I'd like to know if it's possible to start my Windows 7 from WITHIN an opened Ubuntu session.
The same way I would open a virtual machine with Virtual Box, but without having to create a virtual machine (Why would I recreate a windows 7 installation (approx 25GB), when I already have one installed on my computer...?)
Because this machine is the file server for 4 Windows machines I decided to try an anti-virus. ClamTk found 9 threats, all in PDFs. The problem is that the Home screen reports that the Anti-virus engine and the GUI version are out of date, but there is no apparent means of upgrade.
I am implementing Oracle RAC using 11.2. For shared disc option and low cost, we are planning to use Virtual Machines. I have installed one virtual machine (PARENT) Specifications: Oracle Linux 5.8 (64 bit) RAM 16GB HDD 90GB CPU 1
After installing VM, I tried to install another VM (CHILD) using Oracle Virtual Box.
