I have to install an Oracle server on a remote machine.
And ... It's not my first time :P
As we need to use a GUI Wizard, usually we do an export of the DISPLAY to a computer which can handle the X session and then everything works great... Until now.
I have 2 virtual machine, one with VMWare one with another VM system (KVM or XEN ; i dont remember ;) both with a CentOS 6.5 with SELinux disable and no firewalling setup
Both have a role of oracle server.
My installation on the "non-VMWare" worked fine with the usual process :
xhost + new_server ssh -X -Y login@new_server export DISPLAY=workstation_ip:0.0 cd /u01/app/oracle/database ./runInstaller
and I received the wizard on my workstation.
Now, with the VMWare Virtual machine, the same process fails when starting anything that require a X, even xclock for example.
So I compared the ssh config of the both server, to check if the forwarding is set to on, but are the same.
So I am asking myself if there is no config to set up on the VMWare virtual machine to permit the X session ?
