• You will need to have linked a dSource to an HANA instance environment
  • Make sure you have the required Instance Owner permissions on the target instance and environment

You can take a new snapshot of the dSource by clicking the Camera icon on the dSource card. Once the snapshot is complete you can provision a new VDB from it.


  1. Login to the Delphix Admin application.

  2. Click Manage.

  3. Select My Datasets.

  4. Select a HANA dSource.

  5. Select a snapshot from which you want to provision.

  6. Click Provision to open Provision VDB panel.

  7. Select a target environment from the left pane.

  8. Select an Installation to use from the dropdown list of available HANA instances on that environment.

  9. Set the Environment User: Admin (e.g hdbadm)

  10. Click Next.

  11. Select a Target Group for the VDB.

  12. Click the green Plus icon to add a new group, if necessary.

  13. Select a Snapshot Policy for the VDB.

  14. Click the green Plus icon to create a new policy, if necessary.

  15. Click Next.

  16. Specify any desired hook operations.

  17. Click Next.

  18. Review the Provisioning Configuration and Data Management information.

  19. Click Finish.

When provisioning starts, you can review the progress of the job in the Databases panel, or in the Job History panel of the Dashboard. When provisioning is complete, the VDB will be included in the group you designated, and listed in the Databases panel. If you select the VDB in the Databases panel and click the Open icon, you can view its card, which contains information about the database and its Data Management settings.

Once the VDB provisioning has successfully completed, if the source and target instance ids are not the same, you may want to grant secadm and dbadm on the database to the target instance id.
