This topic describes how to edit attributes of an environment such as name, host address, ssh port, or toolkit path, as well as describing more advanced attributes for specific data platforms.


  1. Login to the Delphix Management application.
  2. Click Manage.
  3. Select Environments.
  4. In the Environments panel, click the name of an environment to view its attributes.
  5. Next to Attributes, click the Pencil icon to edit an attribute. For Oracle RAC environments select your node then click the Pencil icon.
  6. Click the Check icon to save your edits.

Common Editable Attributes

Environment Users

The users for that environment. These are the users who have permission to ssh into an environment or access the environment through the Delphix Connector. For more information on the environment user requirements, see the Requirements topics for specific data platforms.

Host AddressThe IP address for the environment host
NFS Addresses

The IP addresses from the environment host/cluster

If specified, Delphix Engine only allows NFS requests (mount, etc) originated from IP Addresses specified for the host.
If all values in this field are removed then the Delphix Engine will default back to using the Host Address with which the environment was added to the Engine.

Any changes to NFS Addresses list will take effect only after performing disable and enable on existing VDBs.

DSP Configurations

If an environment already exists after enabling server/client DSP authentication, you will need to modify its attributes for host communication to continue working.  As detailed in the above section Adding a new single instance environment after DSP configuration changes, you will need to set up the appropriate stores on the remote host.

PortEnvironment port
Toolkit PathLocation of the toolkit
NotesAny other information you want to add about the environment

Oracle Attributes

Environment Name (RAC)The Environment Name field under Attributes is used to provide the name of the environment host in the case of cluster environments. This field defaults to the IP address of the host unless you specify another name.
Cluster User (RAC)The user who has permission to access the cluster home.
Virtual IP (RAC)The IP address that will failover to another node in the cluster when a failure is detected. Click the green + to add another virtual IP domain and IP address.
ListenersThe listener used to connect incoming client requests to the database. See Adding a Listener to an Oracle Environment for more information.
SSH PortThe port used for secure shell connection to the host.
Toolkit PathThe directory used for storing Delphix toolkit files.
Under the Show Details link
  • Remote Listener: a network name that resolves to an address or address list of Oracle Net remote listeners. Click the green + to add a remote listener.
  • SCAN: Single Client Access Name that is used to allow clients to access cluster databases. Click the green + to add a SCAN.
  • SCAN Listener: Listener used with SCAN to establish client connections to the database. Click the green + to add a SCAN listener name and endpoints.
