This topic describes how to delete an environment. Deleting an environment only affects the environment metadata stored in the Delphix Engine. This operation will not affect physical database installations and is only possible if there are no virtual databases or dSources which are dependent on the environment to be deleted.


Attempts to delete an environment where virtual database are running or where a dSource is linked will fail. Any dependencies need to be removed before environment deletion is possible.


  1. Login to the Delphix Management application.
  2. Click Manage.
  3. Select Environments.
  4. In the Environments panel, select the environment you want to delete.
  5. From the Actions menu (...) located on the top-right corner select Delete.
  6. Click Delete to confirm.
