Trouble setting up Delphix database user

I'm trying to setup Landshark as a sandbox using the sample provided on a memory stick in the training summit.  I'm trying to add the built-in Oracle database for my source and connect to it.  In the environments view, I find the proper database.  When trying to authenticate to it given the user/pass combo "delphixdb/delphixdb," I get an error that the user does not exist.

Upon further probing, I found a createDelphixDBUser.sql script and from the User guide a script. Running the script, I get the following:

[delphix@delphix-source ~]$ ./

This script will create the Delphix database user

Database User will be created in instance <XEXE>
If you would like to create the DB user in a different Database Instance,
please enter the desired SID or press <Enter> to proceed.
select 'Version=' || version from v$instance
ERROR at line 1:
ORA-01034: ORACLE not available
Process ID: 0
Session ID: 0 Serial number: 0
Unable to get database version from database instance <XEXE>.

Is this saying the server is not up?  I'm confused how to resolve this. When doing a lsnrctl, I get the following:

[delphix@delphix-source scripts]$ lsnrctl status

Which shows that its running, correct?  I'm confused as to how to resolve this.  Any help would be appreciated!

Hey Scott. First, I see that you changed the name of your linux VM. That is going to create some problems. You should change it back to linuxsource and reboot. If you have changed the target, also change that back to linuxtarget, and reboot. Did you follow this quickstart guide?
