    With the advent of the Modernization Engine, Delphix is able to convert Unix Oracle databases to Linux. 

    Follow these steps:
    1. Log into the Delphix Admin application using delphix_admin credentials
    2. In the Manage menu, select Databases > My Databases.
    3. Select the Oracle dSource that you want to use for cross-platform provisioning.
    4. Click the dSource's Expand icon to open the dSource card, then click the Flip icon on the card to view the back.
    5. On the back of the dSource card, click the Linux tab.
    6. In the lower right corner of the dSource card, click the green Validate Transformation button.
      The validation process will create a temporary VDB on the Unix staging environment, and run SQL commands against it to verify that the database structure meets the requirements of the underlying Oracle platform conversion technology. Depending on the size of the dSource, this may take several minutes. See Cross-Platform Provisioning of Oracle dSources: Overviewfor more information about the specific database requirements that will checked during this process.
    7. If the validation process is successful, green check marks will appear next to each validation requirement, and a gold database icon will appear next to the dSource name in the Databases panel. If the dSource does not pass the validation process, a red X will appear next to the requirement. See Creating Scripts for Cross-Platform Provisioning for more information on how to correct these violations of the cross-platform provisioning requirements.
