This topic explains how to manage DB2 instances on a host.

When you add an environment with the Delphix Admin application, all existing DB2 instances on the host are automatically discovered by Delphix. This is an important step as Delphix requires that an empty instance be available on the host to be used as either staging or target. Delphix will not create any instances if there are no empty available instances.

A list of all discovered instances is available inside Delphix.

View Instances

  1. Login to the Delphix Admin application with Delphix Admin credentials.
  2. Click Manage.
  3. Select Environments.
  4. In the Environments panel, click on the name of the environment to you want to refresh.
  5. Click on Databases to see a list of all DB2 instances found in the environment.

Updating Instances on a Host 

If you add or remove any DB2 instances from a host you must refresh the environment using the steps listed at Refreshing a DB2 Environment to update the list of instances available to Delphix. Additionally the environment users must be updated to match the DB2 instance owners as detailed in Managing DB2 Users and Instance Owners.
