    Hi,

    If you have used a config template, it only gets used during Provision or Refresh. If you want to change any Oracle parameters in a VDB with no donfig template, just do it via sqlplus/spfile/etc as you would for a non-Delphix database or use a hooks with the alter command or better assign a new template to it via CLI https://docs.delphix.com/docs/delphix-administration/oracle-environments-and-data-sources/provisioni....

    Hi Mouhssine,

    Thank you for your update.

    I found a solution using CLI method that we can change the init parameter file in DE and able to complete the change in DE and it will be effective after the VDB refresh only.

    Below are the steps followed and it worked fine.

    login to DE CLI as delphix_admin

    source "db_name"

    update

    set configParams.<name>=<value> 

    commit
