I have problem. When I tried create dSource, I got :

For dSource "ASE_NAME", failed to find an existing full dump file for source database "ibank2ua".

Error Code

Suggested Action
Make sure that an existing full dump file is accessible and try the operation again.

What is happened? How to fix it?

When you linked the ASE dSource, did you configure it such that it looks for database dumps on a "remote" host (usually the production host) or the "local" host (the staging host)? Please see the diagram on this page for more detail:

Most of the time, two users will need read permission on the directory where the database dumps reside as well as the database dumps themselves:
  • The owner of the ASE staging processes (dataserver and backupserver proccess owners) will need to read the backups when Delphix issues the "LOAD DATABASE" or "LOAD TRANSACTION" commands.

  • The Delphix operating system user will need read permission as well. Please see the paragraph starting with "Designating the Delphix operating system user’s primary group to be the same as the ASE instance’s means..." on the following link:
