Ok. First, don't worry about the part about Windows servers.

Is your LinuxSource powered on? Is it showing an IP address on the console?

Sorry Adam, you replied while I was composing the post:

New installation:
Oracle VM VirtualBox
Delphix (Express) Engine 4.3.3.0

Hi all,
Delphix newbie here.

Having just installed DE following https://docs.delphix.com/display/LS22/Setting+Up+Networking+in+VirtualBox, I was expecting to sit back with a coffee and a self-satisfied grin on my face while Delphix went about discovering its environment.

Alas, my Linux target landshark_daemon.log contains "Listening", my Linux source cycles round every two minutes, scanning, and reporting the message in the post title, and my Delphix interface (not unsurprisingly) displays no databases/environments.

At the networking level, in Oracle VM VirtualBox, I have:
1. All three VMs using VAT on int1 and 'Host-only Adapter' on int2
2. In VirtualBox's preferences, I have an IPv4 adapter address of 172.16.200.1 and net mask of 255.255.255.0
3.  In VirtualBox's preferences, I have, for DHCP server:
Server address - 176.16.200.2
Server mask - 255.255.255.0
Lower address bound - 176.16.200.100
Upper address bound - 176.16.200.100

At the (green) login screen for the Delphix VM, I have an IP of 10.0.2.15
At the Linux login screen of the target VM, I have an IP of 10.0.2.15 and, below that, 176.16.200.100 (which makes a little sense even to me as a DBA)
At the Linux login screen of the source VM, I have an IP of 10.0.2.15 and, below that, nothing (which makes less sense!)

Does anyone have any ideas where I'm going wrong, where I should be looking for more information, or any coffee ?

Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

Ahhh. Change Upper address bound -> 176.16.200.200

You made your DHCP range just one address.

Grrr!!! And I re-read the documentation as well. Thanks for pointing it out.
Just because I'm curious, where do the Windows servers fit into the DE configuration - I haven't seen any mention of them in the documentation?

The Windows servers don't factor in today. Hopefully very soon. I'm currently working on it.

What you are seeing are artifacts from our internal version of Landshark which does leverage Windows MSSQL, as well.

OK, thanks for the info Adam.

Now, having changed the Upper address bound, stopped all my VMs, and restarted VirtualBox, my Linux target is reporting 'Did not find a suitable Delphix Engine. Ensure your Delphix Engine is powered on' (which it is). Where next ?

At the (green) login screen for the Delphix VM, I have an IP of 10.0.2.15
At the Linux login screen of the target VM, I have an IP of 10.0.2.15 and, below that, 176.16.200.100.
At the Linux login screen of the source VM, I have an IP of 10.0.2.15 and, below that, 176.16.200.101

Thanks in advance,
Jes

Ok. great. Did you do steps 6 - 15?

Hi Adam,

Are we talking about https://docs.delphix.com/display/LS22/Quick+Start+Guide+for+the+Delphix+Landshark+Environment ?
Step 6 - Access the admin portal at http://localhost:8080 and login as sysadmin, password sysadmin. You can set the sysadmin password to whatever you like.
Step 15 - After setup is complete, you can now access your DE at http://172.16.200.3

If so, then yes, all that had been done before you pointed out my mistake with the upper address bound. I've just checked it again though, looks OK to the untrained eye, but I can't browse to http://172.16.200.3 ("Can't reach this page").

Thanks again for your insight!

Ok. Then that tells me what I need to know. If you can't get to that address, then something is wrong.

Can you repeat those steps, just to validate them? If you can't successfully complete step 15, then I would re-check the Delphix Engines virtual interfaces are on the correct network types. (NAT on int1 and 'Host-only Adapter' on int2, and that you selected the adapter type from the list).

Am leaving the office shortly. Will try from home and post an update. Thanks again.

Hi Adam,

In 'the Delphix web interface' (http://localhost:8080/ServerSetup.html#/Server%20Setup%20Summary), I have:
Default Gateway - 10.0.2.2
DNS Domain Name - mshome.net
DNS Servers - 192.168.137.1

Does this look correct to you?

Those settings are fine yes. The interest is around the second interface.

So, you were looking at an old documentation page. I'll work to get that old page replaced: https://docs.delphix.com/display/LS/Quick+Start+Guide+for+the+Delphix+Landshark+Environment#QuickSta...

On this more updated link, I have posted some videos to walk you through the process, too. Perhaps this will make things more clear?

Hi Adam,

Well, we're making progress :-)

Having worked through the documentation again last night with the same result, I deleted all three VMs, started again, same result.

This morning, I deleted the VMs again, installed a later version of VirtualBox (5.0.26) which happened to be available and have got a lot further:
Final line of the Linux source log file contains 'Installed WebApp'
Final line of the Linux target log file contains 'SUPREME'
And, in the server setup summary web interface, databases and environments have been populated - which wasn't the case previously.

However, browsing to http://172.16.200.3 still fails with Edge's equivalent of 'Page not found'. Any ideas where the cause of this might lie ? And what are the implications of this for the next steps?

No idea whether my previous problem was due to user error, a cached/retained value somewhere from a previous attempt, or linked to the version of VirtualBox (unlikely?), but thanks for helping me get this far.

As an aside, apart from my inability to follow it correctly, I think that the documentation available is excellent and including the videos was also a great idea ;-)

Regards,
Jes

Supreme. Well, if you got this far that means I know that 172.16.200.3 is a working address. So, just taking a guess here, I would look to of your browser is configured to use a proxy. If so, add the 172.16.200.3 to the exceptions list or choose "bypass for local lan addresses" if applicable.

Jes, are you sorted?

Hi Adam,

Not entirely, but not waiting for anything from you either, thanks.

Browsing to http://172.16.200.3/ works fine with Chrome and IE11, issue is only present using Edge.

I'm on a standalone laptop so nothing should be passing via a proxy. I took the laptop into work today and had one of the network team play with it for a while. Behaviour is consistent, Wireshark shows the request being submitted in Chrome and IE but shows no gets, no nothing via Edge as though the request isn't even being passed through. As yet unresolved.

I can work around it but it may be interesting for you, just in case another client hits the same issue.

Thanks for following up.
Regards,
Jes
