Hi there

I am trying to set up Delphix Express 4.3.3 to work with MYSQL on Centos 6.

I installed 2 VMs from scratch on VMWare Workstation 11 running Centos and installed MySQL using yum.

I have (hopefully) followed the prerequisite steps for source and target hosts for MySQL.

I have added the Environment and it connects when I test the connection.

When I go to Manage -> Environments -> Add Dataset Home +

I use the following :

* Type = MySQL
*Installation = /usr/bin/mysql (output of 'which mysql' command)

I get the following error :

The host "" of type "Linux" is not supported for repository "/usr/bin/mysql".

Error Code

Please help - what am I doing wrong ? Why is this not compatible / supported? Where do I start troubleshooting ?

Thank You

It does not look like you are running a supported flavor of Linux or a supported version of MySQL:

CentOS 6 should be fine, but the MySQL version is too low. (needs to be 5.5+) Once you have updated your MySQL to a supported version, you should be able to refresh your environments in Delphix and the dataset homes will automatically be discovered and set for you.
