This article outlines the procedure for setting up network access to the Delphix Engine. Follow the initial installation instructions in Installing the Delphix Engine before addressing this procedure.


  1. Power on the Delphix Engine and open the Console.
  2. Wait for the Delphix Management Service and Delphix Boot Service to come online. This might take up to 10 minutes during the first boot. Wait for the large orange box to turn green.
  3. Press any key to access the sysadmin console. 
  4. Entersysadmin for the username and the password.
  5. A description of available network settings and instructions for editing will be shown.

    Delphix Engine Network Setup
    To access the system setup through the browser, the system must first be configured for networking in your
    environment. From here, you can configure the primary interface, DNS, hostname, and default route. When DHCP is
    configured, all other properties are derived from DHCP settings.
    To see the current settings, run "get." To change a property, run "set <property>=<value>." To commit your changes,
    run "commit." To exit this setup and return to the standard CLI, run "discard."
        defaultRoute    IP address of the gateway for the default route -- for example, ""
        dhcp            Boolean value indicating whether DHCP should be used for the primary interface. Setting this value
                        to "true" will cause all other properties (address, hostname, and DNS) to be derived from the DHCP
        dnsDomain       DNS Domain -- for example, ""
        dnsServers      DNS server(s) as a list of IP addresses -- for example, ","
        hostname        Canonical system hostname, used in alert and other logs -- for example, "myserver"
        primaryAddress  Static address for the primary interface in CIDR notation -- for example, ""
    Current settings:
        dhcp: false
        hostname: Delphix
  6. Configure the hostname. If using DHCP, this step can be skipped.

    delphix network setup update *> set hostname=<hostname>
    Use the same hostname entered during the server installation.
  7. Configure DNS. If using DHCP, this step can be skipped.

    delphix network setup update *> set dnsDomain=<domain>
    delphix network setup update *> set dnsServers=<server1-ip>[,<server2-ip>,...]
  8. Configure either a static or DHCP address:

    DHCP Configuration

    delphix network setup update *> set dhcp=true

    Static Configuration

    delphix network setup update *> set dhcp=false
    delphix network setup update *> set primaryAddress=<address>/<prefix-len>
    The static IP address must be specified in CIDR notation (for example,
  9. Configure a default gateway. If using DHCP, this step can be skipped.

    delphix network setup update *> set defaultRoute=<gateway-ip>
  10. Commit the changes. Use the get command prior to committing to verify the desired configuration.

    delphix network setup update *> commit
    Successfully committed network settings. Further setup can be done through the browser at:
    Type 'exit' to disconnect, or any other commands to continue using the CLI.
  11. Check that the Delphix Engine can now be accessed through a Web browser by navigating to the displayed IP address, or hostname if using DNS.
  12. Exit setup.

    delphix> exit
