This topic describes how to refresh an environment.
When a host or cluster has already been configured in the Delphix Management application as an environment, and is subsequently changed in certain ways, an environment refresh may be required for the Delphix Engine to acknowledge the changes.
During environment discovery and environment refreshes, the Delphix Engine pushes a fresh copy of the toolkit to each host environment. Included in the toolkit are:
A Java Runtime Environment, or JRE
Delphix .JAR files
The Delphix hostchecker utility
Scripts for managing the environment and/or VDBs
Delphix Connector log files (when applicable)
The Delphix Engine then executes some of these scripts to discover information about the objects in your environment, such as where the databases are installed, their names, and information required to connect to them.
Refreshing an Environment
- Click Manage.
- Select Environments.
- On the left-hand side of the screen, click the name of the environment you wish to refresh.
- Click the Refresh icon.
This will generate several jobs related to the environment discovery processes. You can view the status of the jobs by clicking Active Jobs in the upper right-hand corner of the screen.
- Wait for all related jobs to complete.
When all related jobs are complete, the environment refresh process is complete.
