After creating a template and provisioning Employee db and App in Landshark, I tried to create a data container.

Under data sources, there is no dropdown of available dbs or apps as shown in the video.  Instead I get the message:
No VDB or vFiles is available for this data source. Please use the Delphix admin application to provision a new VDB or vFiles.
The connection info is also empty.

This goes for both the app and the db.  This doesn't make any sense to me as I do have both a vdb and app.

What did you specify for your template? Can you post a screenshot?

Ok, great. So, what you need to do is create a vdb of the Employee XE DB and a vai of the Employee Web Application. Then you can create a container with those two objects. A container constists of children (vdb's and vai's) of the parents(sources). Does that help?

I tried that first but I got the same result.  So in short I've tried it both ways, and no matter which way I do it I get the same response.

Are the items in your Dev Copies folder already part of another template? I can see by their icons that they are enrolled in Jetstream. VDB's and VAI's can only be assigned in one place in Jetstream (i.e. as source or container objects in one template/container).
