Here is once question for support.
Has Oracle changed their requirement to reproduce any bug or production issue on a physical server installation of Oracle if it happened on Oracle installed on vmware?

Nope, I don't ask Oracle to support VMWare. As long as VMWare supports VMWare and Oracle supports Oracle, we're good. According to Metalink 249212.1, Oracle does support Oracle on VMWare – it's just not certified.

Ah, Ok. It's that lack of certification that may give people pause.The few times I've seen Oracel run on VM, there have been no issues.I've seen Oracle Apps 10.x with Oracle 7.3 run on a VM, because the HWwas too old, needed replaced, and using p2v was *much* easier than tryingto recreate apps 10.x.BTW, please don't ask me how that was done, someone else did it, and Idon't know what how he did it. I seem to recall it wasn't quite straightforward.Jared StillCertifiable Oracle DBA and Part Time Perl Evangelist

It’s the same Hotmail®. If by “same” you mean up to 70% faster.
