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?

Official Response
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.

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?

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

Bev, ignore that suggested action. Are you connecting at work, or at home? If at work, do you have a WebProxy?

at home - no web proxy that I know of - how would I check?

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?

personal email - I have logged in successfully 3 times with my personal email into my delphix account

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?

oh, sorry. The default user/pass for that screen is delphix_admin/delphix . You set the password to landshark after you login

I tried that as well - still no luck - is there a way to check the password?
