I am in a process to create vFILE for eBS database binaries and running hook scripts to to have binaries ready for autoconfig. While passing information, it looks like Delphix engine is not picking complete IP address of target hosts for CONTEXT_NAME. IP address of my server is 10.68.x.x and Delphix is picking on first part of IP address "10". All diectory staructure and xml files create with only "10".

While trying to create snapshot, Delphoix is looking for CONTEXT_NAME with full IP addess (<NAME>_10.68.x.x) and there is directory or xml files with full IP address name.

Is this a bug or I am doing something wrong?

Hi Deepa,

I believe Oracle does not support the use of IP addresses instead of hostnames:


EBS is expecting the target system hostname to look like "hostname.domainname". It must be splitting on the "." character of the IP address to decide that "10" is the hostname and "68.xx.xx" is the domain name.

I'd recommend setting up hostname-to-IP resolutions in "/etc/hosts" (or on a DNS server). Below is an Oracle document detailing how to do such things.

See Page 23: https://docs.oracle.com/cd/B53825_08/current/acrobat/121oaig.pdf

Hope that helps!
