This topic describes how to customize VDB configuration settings, including settings that are reserved by the Delphix Server, those that are removed from the database configuration file during the provisioning process, and those that can be customized.

 

When you create a VDB, configuration settings are copied from the dSource and used to create the VDB. Most settings are copied directly, and you can see these settings by clicking the Advanced link in the Target Environment screen in the Provision VDB wizard.

You can customize many configuration settings through the use of a VDB Config Template. It is important to know, however, that some configuration parameters are not customizable and some are stripped out during the provisioning process but are customizable. All categories are all listed in this topic.

Creating a VDB Config Template

  1. Log into the Delphix Admin application using Delphix Admin credentials.

  2. Select Manage > VDB Config Templates to open the VDB Configuration Template Manager.

  3. Click the green Plus icon to add a parameter.

  4. Enter the name and value for the parameter.

  5. Repeat steps 3 and 4 for each parameter you want to add to the template.

  6. When you're done adding parameters, click Save Template.

 

Applying a VDB Config Template

You can apply a VDB Configuration Template to a VDB during the provisioning process.

  1. In the Target Environment screen of the Provision VDB wizard, click Advanced.

  2. Select Use Template.

  3. Select a template.

  4. Click Next.

These parameters are restricted for use by the Delphix Server. Attempting to customize these parameters through the use of a VDB Configuration Template will cause an error during the provisioning process.

Building Templates from Other Templates

If you have already created a VDB Config Template, you can use it as the basis for creating other templates.

  1. Open the VDB Configuration Template Manager, and then select a template.
  2. Click Create New Template.
  3. Enter a name for the template.
  4. Click OK.
    A new template is created with the parameters from the selected template. You can now edit or add parameters as necessary.
  5. Click Save Template.
