I'm trying to add a dSource to the demo database XEXE (Employee XE DB) but I get 'In use' on the 'Add dSource' dialog of the Delphix management  web GUI.  I tried to shut down the database via telnet/SQLPlus using delphixdb user Id but get "ORA-12547: TNS:lost contact" when trying to connect within SQLPlus.  Any ideas?

Hi Adrian,

Thanks for the screen shot, this confirms that you are doing as I suspected. You can only have a single dsource of a source database per Delphix Engine. In the GUI it shows that you have selected to make a dsource from a dsource called XEXE. You can only provision a VDB from a dsource so please have an attempt at this. There are some good videos that show the LandShark(XEXE) installation and how to make you first Vdb. 


I hope these help.

Regards Paul.
