Actually Oracle will not support vmware, if you can duplicate the problem without vmware then Oracle will support will help you. This also includes Oracle's VM at this time.

Not entirely true. Oracle still supports their database no matter where it's installed (as long as it's licensed). They are much pickier about where their responsibility ends and the other applications begin.

Is anyone running
Oracle (10g) on VMWare? Have you had any difficulties? We are considering placing some production systems on VMWare so that we can better control resources consumed by individual applications. We have completed an install and have been monitoring the database to ensure that there aren't any problems with running an "empty" database (backup, memory, etc) as a proof-of-concept for a couple of weeks now so we know that it can be done.
