This topic describes how to enable and disable staging, provisioning, and linking for databases.

Before you can use a database as a dSource, you must first make sure that you have defined a staging environment and enabled linking to it in the Delphix environment. Similarly, before you can provision a virtual database (VDB) to a target database, you must make sure that you have enabled provisioning to the host or cluster to which the Delphix environment is attached.


  1. Login to the Delphix Admin application using Delphix Admin credentials
  2. Click Manage.
  3. Select Environments.
  4. Click Databases.
  5. To enable or disable staging, move the slider next to Use as Staging to Yes or No.
