This topic describes how to configure the Delphix Engine network during initial installation.
Delphix communicates it's IP address in application layer data and this cannot be translated by NAT
You can configure a Delphix Engine to use either a dynamic (DHCP) IP address or a static IP address.
- Power on the Delphix Engine and open the Console.
- Wait for the Delphix Management Service and Delphix Boot Service to come online.
This might take up to 10 minutes during the first boot. Wait for the large orange box to turn green.
- Press any key to access the sysadmin console.
sysadmin@SYSTEMfor the username and
sysadminfor the password.
You will be presented with a description of available network settings and instructions for editing.
Delphix Engine Network Setup To access the system setup through the browser, the system must first be configured for networking in your environment. From here, you can configure the primary interface, DNS, hostname, and default route. When DHCP is configured, all other properties are derived from DHCP settings. To see the current settings, run "get." To change a property, run "set <property>=<value>." To commit your changes, run "commit." To exit this setup and return to the standard CLI, run "discard." defaultRoute IP address of the gateway for the default route -- for example, "126.96.36.199." dhcp Boolean value indicating whether DHCP should be used for the primary interface. Setting this value to "true" will cause all other properties (address, hostname, and DNS) to be derived from the DHCP response dnsDomain DNS Domain -- for example, "delphix.com" dnsServers DNS server(s) as a list of IP addresses -- for example, "188.8.131.52,184.108.40.206." hostname Canonical system hostname, used in alert and other logs -- for example, "myserver" primaryAddress Static address for the primary interface in CIDR notation -- for example, "220.127.116.11/22" Current settings: defaultRoute: 192.168.1.1 dhcp: false dnsDomain: example.com dnsServers: 192.168.1.1 hostname: Delphix primaryAddress: 192.168.1.100/24
hostname. If you are using DHCP, you can skip this step.
delphix network setup update *> set hostname=<hostname>
Use the same
hostnameyou entered during the server installation.
Configure DNS. If you are using DHCP, you can skip this step.
delphix network setup update *> set dnsDomain=<domain> delphix network setup update *> set dnsServers=<server1-ip>[,<server2-ip>,...]
Configure either a static or DHCP address.
delphix network setup update *> set dhcp=true
delphix network setup update *> set dhcp=false delphix network setup update *> set primaryAddress=<address>/<prefix-len>
The static IP address must be specified in CIDR notation (for example,
Configure a default gateway. If you are using DHCP, you can skip this step.
delphix network setup update *> set defaultRoute=<gateway-ip>
Commit your changes. Note that you can use the
getcommand prior to committing to verify your desired configuration.
delphix network setup update *> commit Successfully committed network settings. Further setup can be done through the browser at: http://<address> Type "exit" to disconnect, or any other commands to continue using the CLI.
- Check that you can now access the Delphix Engine through a Web browser by navigating to the displayed IP address, or hostname if using DNS.
