Managing the Operating System

Mission Control runs as an open virtual appliance. The underlying operating system, CentOS, can be modified or patched as needed. For best practices, please refer to the official documentation:  https://www.centos.org/docs/

Note: Any changes to files related to Delphix may result in an unusable system. These files are stored in the following locations:

  • /opt/delphix

  • /var/delphix

  • /var/log/delphix

To manage the appliance or the Operation System or to upgrade, you must have root access. The default root password is “delphix.” You should change this as soon as possible.

To navigate to the System screen, as seen below:

  1. On the right-hand side of the toolbar, click the configuration icon.

  2. Click System.

Here you can view the current version of Mission Control.
