This topic describes the procedure for exporting a virtual database (VDB) to a physical one, also known as V2P.


Before you perform the V2P operation, you must have created a database on the target instance into which you will load the exported data. It must be sufficiently large, and you must have created it with the for load SAP ASE option.

The Delphix Engine will initiate a load command using the database specified. The V2P operation will overwrite any existing data in this database.


  1. Login to the Delphix Admin application as a Delphix Admin user, or as a group or object owner.

  2. Select the dSource or VDB you want to export.

  3. Select the snapshot of the dSource or VDB state you want to export.

  4. Click V2P.

  5. Select the target environmentThe target environment should have been added to Delphix previously and should meet all target host requirements, see Requirements for SAP ASE Target Hosts and Databases.

  6. Under Installation, select which instance that you want to export to.

  7. Enter the Name of the database on the target instance into which you want to load the exported data.

  8. Select whether or not to Run Recovery After V2P. When this option is set, the Delphix Engine will online the database when the export is done.

  9. Click Next.

  10. Select whether you want to have an email sent to you when the export process completes.

  11. Click Finish.
