Extended Properties and How to View Them

This topic describes extended properties on VDBs that you can use to track the origin of VDBs through SQL Server tools on target servers.

These are the extended properties:

dlpx_server_nameAddress of the Delphix Engine hosting the VDB
dlpx_server_uuidUUID of the Delphix Engine hosting the VDB
dlpx_source_idInternal reference of the VDB

You can find these properties in the following locations:

  • For a VDB using the SQL Server Management Studio tool: under the Extended Properties page of the Properties window
  • Using the sp_dlpx_vdbinfo stored procedure.
    • To install and run this stored procedure, run the SQL code contained in <Delphix Connector install path>\etc\sp_dlpx_vdbinfo.sql.
