  • 1.  changing from oracle vm virtual box to vmware

    Posted 05-05-2016 12:00:00 PM
    I am changing from oracle vm virtual box to VMware- trying to install the VMware Linux target but it keeps bringing up the oracle virtual box.  I installed the VMware Linux source with no issues, do I need to uninstall the oracle virtual box for this to work with VMware?

    No. But, VirtualBox is probably set to be the default program for OVA's. Right0click the OVA and choose VMware from the "Open with" menu.

    that worked - thanks - I am ath delphix express screen logged on as SYSTEM -----the prompt came up  DelphixExpress network setup update *> - not sure what to enter - did not find that in the instructions - also the Current settings are: defaultRoute: (unset) dhcp: true dnsDomain:(empty) hostname: DelphixExpressss primaryAddress: 0.0.0.0/8 - I think something needs to change there ut don't know what to put in or how to do it.

    https://docs.delphix.com/display/LS/Quick+Start+Guide+for+the+Delphix+Landshark+Environment

    I am assuming you are on Step 6, which says it should be skipped if you are on Delphix Express.

    Exit out and proceed to step 7.

    yes on step 7 - but delphix express does not have an IP - is that correct:

    No. Do you have the network interface of DelphixExpress set to NAT?


  • 7.  RE: changing from oracle vm virtual box to vmware

    Posted 05-05-2016 02:03:00 PM
    sorry Adam - missed that - so I set Nat - the IP is 192.160.89.130 - but cannot access it with http://DelphixExpress or http://192160.89.130 - so have I missed something else?

    You should be able to access this:
    http://192.168.89.130

    If you can't, check to ensure your web browser isn't trying to use a web proxy for this local address.

    Also, try to ping that IP.

    I was able to ping it - so left Microsoft edge and switched to chrome and it worked - I did a next/next/next through the setup and now at  the register screen - does not like my email address I am using the one I used to request delphix

    I verified my email and logged into my account with it but trying to register I get an error - no API session has been established.  Suggested Action: Create and API session calling /resources/json/delphix/session -not sure how to do that


  • 11.  RE: changing from oracle vm virtual box to vmware

    Posted 05-05-2016 03:41:00 PM
    Bev, ignore that suggested action. Are you connecting at work, or at home? If at work, do you have a WebProxy?


  • 12.  RE: changing from oracle vm virtual box to vmware

    Posted 05-05-2016 04:14:00 PM
    at home - no web proxy that I know of - how would I check?


  • 13.  RE: changing from oracle vm virtual box to vmware

    Posted 05-05-2016 04:23:00 PM
    If this is your home machine, then I would say 99% chance that you are not. What email address are you trying to register with, your personal or work? Can you try to login again?


  • 14.  RE: changing from oracle vm virtual box to vmware

    Posted 05-05-2016 04:25:00 PM
    personal email - I have logged in successfully 3 times with my personal email into my delphix account


  • 15.  RE: changing from oracle vm virtual box to vmware

    Posted 05-05-2016 04:28:00 PM
    Ok. To humor me here, can you try to register the engine with your work email? If that doesn't work, can you reboot the DE and try again?


  • 16.  RE: changing from oracle vm virtual box to vmware

    Posted 05-05-2016 04:30:00 PM
    Adam - I just emailed you my email address


  • 17.  RE: changing from oracle vm virtual box to vmware

    Posted 05-05-2016 04:32:00 PM
    I did try my work email - same issue - rebooting DE now


  • 18.  RE: changing from oracle vm virtual box to vmware

    Posted 05-05-2016 04:42:00 PM
    rebooting seemed to do the trick - thanks again for your help

    trying now to login to the GUI delphix engine - using sysadmin/sysadmin - or sysadmin/landshark
    not working - do I have that wrong?


  • 21.  RE: changing from oracle vm virtual box to vmware

    Posted 05-05-2016 05:35:00 PM
    Which step are you on in the Quick Install guide?


  • 22.  RE: changing from oracle vm virtual box to vmware

    Posted 05-05-2016 05:37:00 PM
    step 9


  • 23.  RE: changing from oracle vm virtual box to vmware

    Posted 05-05-2016 05:39:00 PM
    have you tried the user delphix_admin with the password landshark ?


  • 24.  RE: changing from oracle vm virtual box to vmware

    Posted 05-05-2016 05:40:00 PM
    yes - no luck


  • 25.  RE: changing from oracle vm virtual box to vmware

    Posted 05-05-2016 05:42:00 PM
    oh, sorry. The default user/pass for that screen is delphix_admin/delphix . You set the password to landshark after you login


  • 26.  RE: changing from oracle vm virtual box to vmware

    Posted 05-05-2016 05:52:00 PM
    I tried that as well - still no luck - is there a way to check the password?


  • 27.  RE: changing from oracle vm virtual box to vmware

    Posted 05-05-2016 06:14:00 PM
    post a screen shot of your login page, please.


  • 28.  RE: changing from oracle vm virtual box to vmware

    Posted 05-05-2016 06:44:00 PM
    I emailed the  screen shot -couldn't figure out how to paste it here


  • 29.  RE: changing from oracle vm virtual box to vmware

    Posted 05-05-2016 07:01:00 PM
    You somehow navigated to the server setup login. Click the Delphix Admin link on that page, and login with delphix_admin/delphix on that screen.
