This database unique name already exists

Hello all,

when I try to provision a new VDB it gives "This database unique name already exists, please use a different name". The name "ERPDEV" has not been used before, and to make sure I tries:

find / -name ERPDEV

but no valid result came back! I checked /mnt/provision directory and no folder holds this name. How can I use this name if I can't find where it is used? 

any help or suggestion is appreciated.

Hi Abdullah,

Can you apply this action plan

Connect to you engine via ssh using delphix_admin account, past the output of this command to this request

YOUR_ENGINE> database ls

as you can see it doesn't exist. Even if it was deleted, its directory would (I believe) appear in /mnt/provision but it doesn't.

Hi Abdullah,

Can you trigger a refresh of the envirnoment to force database discovery again on this server.

I refreshed the environment, but issue persists. 

I appreciate your support Mouhssine; I apologize for my absence.

Hi Abdullah,

Sorry for the delay was in rush last week.

Can I ask for those results please from cli

Engine> source ls
Engine> sourceconfig ls
Engine>database select vprdc11 > ls

Can you just please confirm what « erpdev » name points to is it also used for a dsource.

Regards,

Mouhssine
