In the oratab file, these SoftLinks are referenced for $ORACLE_HOME. Upon refresh of environments, Delphix will still not be able register these soft-linked Oracle Homes as they are not part of oraInventory. These has to be physically added to the Environment. Below are the steps

·       Select Dataset Home Type – Oracle (This is will be default)

·       Under Installation Home – Type in SoftLink Oracle Home information (Eg: /oracle/QR3/112_64)

·       Click the Check mark.
