This topic describes how to enable and disable staging, provisioning, and linking for databases.

Before you can use a database as a dSource, you must first make sure that you have defined a staging environment and enabled linking to it in the Delphix environment. Similarly, before you can provision a virtual database (VDB) to a target database, you must make sure that you have enabled provisioning to the host or cluster to which the Delphix environment is attached.

For more information, see Setting Up and Configuring Delphix for SQL Server or Provisioning an Oracle dSource across Platforms.
