This topic describes the process of deleting a virtual Oracle E-Business Suite (EBS) instance.

Be careful! Services running on the appsTier depend on the availability of services on the dbTier. The steps below are explicitly ordered with these dependencies in mind. Executing steps out of order may lead to errors in accessing the virtual EBS instance.


  1. Login to the Delphix Management application.

  2. Click Manage.

  3. Select Datasets.
  4. Select the appsTier vFiles for your EBS instance.

  5. Delete the appsTier vFiles by clicking the Trash Can icon in the lower left-hand corner.

  6. Select the VDB utilized by your EBS instance.

  7. Delete the VDB by clicking the Trash Can icon in the lower left-hand corner.

  8. Click Manage.
  9. Select Environments.
  10. Select the target dbTier environment.

  11. Click the Databases tab.

  12. In the list of Installation Homes on the environment, click the Trash Can icon next to the dbTechStack Oracle Home you want to delete.

  13. Click Manage.
  14. Select Datasets.
  15. Select the dbTechStack vFiles for your EBS instance.

  16. Delete the dbTechStack vFiles by clicking the Trash Can icon in the lower left-hand corner.

  17. Clean up any files that the virtual EBS instance might have created outside of the Delphix mount points on the target environments. These typically include the instance-specific directories, oraInventory files, and oraTab entries.

Once you have deleted all three EBS virtual datasets successfully, your virtual EBS instance should be fully removed from the target environments.
