  • 1.  Migrate Oracle VDB using API and change Oracle MountBase

    Posted 04-13-2020 04:45:00 PM
    Hi ,
       How can I change the Oracle VDB mountBase using an API?
       I want to migrate my VDBs to a new server and change the mountBase on the new server.
       Found this artile on Migration :
       https://support.delphix.com/Delphix_Virtualization_Engine/Delphix_Admin/Migrating_VDB_Using_an_API_Call_(KBA3809)

      I also need to change the mountBase. Any idea how to do it?

    Hi Ansamma,

    Specify the mount point under source section of the provision resource api call.

    POST /resources/json/delphix/database/provision
    {
    "type": "OracleProvisionParameters",
    "container": {
    ...
    },
    "source": {
    "type": "OracleVirtualSource",
    "mountBase": "/mnt/provision" # Delphix Filesystem Mount path
    },
    "sourceConfig": {
    ...
    } },
    "timeflowPointParameters": {
    ...
    } }


    Regards,

    Mouhssine

    Hello Ansamma,

    I think what Mouhssine has proposed will help you during the initial provision of a VDB but it won't help to change the mountBase of a VDB. Unfortunately, once a VDB has been provisioned, you cannot change its mountBase.

    There has been a very long standing feature request for the ability to change a VDB's mountBase after it has been provisioned:
    • IDEA-1940 - Allow VDB mount base to change without having to recreate the VDB
    I see you have opened a ticket requesting details on how to do this so I have already added your company to the feature request to raise its priority.

    Thanks,
      Neal
