  • 1.  re-link SQL server dSource

    When I try to re-lonk a SQL server dSource using legit parameters, I am getting this error message: 
    Error Sync must load from existing full or differential database backups because the source database "RetailPOR" is in simple recovery model.
    Error Code exception.db.mssqlldb.sourcedb.simple_mode.backup_load.invalid
    Suggested Action Sync using an existing full or differential database backup.

    What that error message is trying to suggest is that the source database is in "simple" recovery mode which means that it cannot produce transaction logs ( ).

    So if you want Delphix to stay synchronized with it, you would want to either:
    • Change the source database's recovery model to full or bulk logged
    • Then change the Delphix dSource's validatedSync mode to transaction logs
    • Select a validatedSync mode that is appropriate for a database that is configured to be in the "simple" mode (FULL or DIFFERENTIAL).
