  • 1.  How to use -mapfile option in dx_provision_vdb utility

    Posted 06-19-2018 10:57:00 AM

    I am trying to use -mapfile option under dx_provision_vdb utility, where I need to have below replacements/mappings. But it is keep failing. I don't find any suitable example to refer. Please suggest how that works?

    Requirement is to replace "/oracle/ora01/s12102b" with "/ora01" which I have placed as below in a file and passing as parameter- 
    -------mapfile----- 
    /oracle/ora01/s12102b:/ora01

    command : 
    -------------- 
    ./dx_provision_vdb [other parameters] -mapfile /opt/oracl/emapfile 

    Problem with mapping file. VDB won't be created. at script/dx_provision_vdb.pl line 446.

    #dxToolkit

    Hi Sushil,

    There's a typo in your mapfile reference.  Is that a copy paste error or are you actually defining it like that?

    /opt/oracl/Emapfile - the E is after the oracl/

    If that is not the issue be sure you have no hidden carriage returns or Windows-to-Unix character issues.

    I've tested it myself Sushil and I get the same issue.  I've looked at the code and the format of our mapfile is correct.  There may be a bug here.

    Maybe Marcin is around to take a look?

    Hello 
    I will take a look on that. Sushil could you please run this command with -debug 3 option, than zip a new created folder debug_[enginename] and send attach here ?

    What version of Delphix Engine are you using ?

    Thanks Marcin to look into it and to create follow-up request.
    We are trying to automate provision process in our environment, where file mapping is a mandatory requirement.
    I will inform to CSM about this issue.
    Is it possible to provide next estimated Release dates (approx) of dxtoolkit?

    Thanks,
    Sushil
