There may be situations in which you want to migrate a virtual pluggable database (vPDB) to a new container database on the same or a different target environment, for example when upgrading the host on which the vPDB resides, or as part of a general data center migration. This is easily accomplished by first disabling the vPDB, then using the Migrate vPDB feature to select a new container database.


You should already set up and have Delphix discover a container database in the same environment as the vPDB currently is or from a different environment to which the vPDB will be migrated to.


Login to your Delphix Engine using Delphix Admin credentials.

  1. Click Manage.
  2. Select My Datasets.
  3. Select the vPDB you want to migrate.
  4. Select the Configuration tab.
  5. Move the slider control from Enabled to Disabled.

  6. Click Yes to confirm.
    When the vPDB is disabled, its icon will turn gray.
  7. In the upper right-hand corner of the Configuration tab, click the vPDB Migrate icon. 
  8. Select the new container database for the vPDB, the user for that environment, and the database installation where the container database of the vPDB will reside.
  9. Click the Check icon to confirm your selections.
  10. Move the slider control to Enabled.
  11. Click Yes to confirm.

Within a few minutes, your vPDB will re-start in the new environment, and you can continue to work with it as you would any other vPDB.
