Hi, 
i am trying to set up the landshark environment.

When i run the delphix setup and get to the storage section, it don't detect any storage.

Do i have to set up disks my self, thought it was pre configured on the images?
Is there any documentation on this?

Best regards, 
Per

Yes, the storage in the 30 day Delphix demo as well as Delphix Express should be preconfigured.
Could you send us a screen shot of the storage page when you are doing the configuration of Delphix?

Thanks

Hi Per,
This doc: Quick Start Guide for Landshark might also help

We are using ESXi 5.1. I did thin provision the drive for the Demo engine.

yes, there seems to be a problem with the current 30 day demo build. The storage is not preconfigured. You can just configure it with 3 LUNs of say 10 GB each.  You probably also want to set the vCPUs down from 8 to 1 and memory down from 8 GB to 2 GB if you are installing this on a laptop type environment.

Also, we have a free version of Delphix, called Delphix Express, that is pre-configured with storage at 25GB, 1 vCPU and 2 GB of memory. Delphix Express will be on the download site at http://pages.delphix.com/Free-Trial-Request.html soon. For now, if you go to http://pages.delphix.com/Free-Trial-Request.html and put "express" as your title, I'll send Delphix Express instead of 30 day demo

The Delphix Demo engine is not pre-configured. Adding the storage disks are covered in the quick install documentation, but perhaps I could do a better job of highlighting the steps.

I have updated the Quick Install Guide for VMware to be more clear around the need to add virtual disks and included some screenshots depicting how to do this in VMware Workstation (it is very similar in Fusion and ESX).

Thanks, adding the 3 disk resolved the issue for us.
