You use a empty (or blank) DBVM to build a custom DB template.

Log in to vSphere Client as a system administrator and connect to the vCenter server.


Deploy an empty DBVM into the system resource pool.

When deployment completes, the empty virtual machine appears in the system resource pool. This virtual machine is known as the base DBVM.


Power on the base DBVM.
