Ello everyone!
Just a little pro-active research here...:)  The boss is investigating and would like to test building our OEMGC on a VM, (VMWare, paid version 4 or they are researching the free version, but that makes me a bit nervous...)  This is version on the OEM and also house our RMAN catalog.

This VM server would also be home for our 11g, ( Apex and an open source ODBC bridge to SQL Server. 

My previous experience with OEM on a VM server was not very positive, but it was a couple years ago and due to, (my theory here...) misconfiguration of the  resources that allowed the OEM VM to be starved for the resources in CPU and memory it required to run 24/7.

Anyone out there running OEM and/or Apex on VMWare or another VMServer?  Any recommendations?  Warnings?  Risks and gotchas?  I prefer to be as prepared as possible in the upcoming build vs. going in blind... :)
