Error in creating VDB (Delphix on AWS)

  • 1.  Error in creating VDB (Delphix on AWS)

    Hi,

    We have been trying to create VDB and received the following error message (the dSource is registered successfully).

    Command Output says:
     
    " ERROR : SQL> LRM-00109: could not open parameter file '/delphix/Vprorize_81B/datafile/init.ora.rename' "

    It seem that the target db server has not been NFS mounted to /delphix. 

    What should we do for this?

    Hi Yasu,
    There could be a number of issues but an easy one to check first is to verify that /delphix is owned by the delphix_os user that you are using to provision the VDB with as well as the verify that it has rx for group and world. 
    Therefore if you are using oracle as the delphix_os user then /delphix should be owned by oracle and it's permissions should be set to 755.
    Cheers,
    Dave G.

    Hi Dave,

    Confirmed as follows:

    /delphix (target DB server)

    owner    delphix_os
    group    oinstall
    mode    755

    any other items that we should check?

    Thank you,
    Yasu

    Is there currently anything in the /delphix directory? Are you provisioning the VDB as delphix_os, or as oracle?

    As a test, change the permissions of /delphix to 777. Then try a provision. If it is successful, do a ls -la on /delphix and see who the folder is mounted as.

    It is probably worth verifying that the nfs port is not blocked by your security group for either the delphix engine or the target environment.  Port 2049 is allocated to nfs; is it allowed for both tcp and udp on both the target and the Delphix Engine?
