Managing the Operating System

Delphix Reporting runs as an open virtual appliance. The underlying operating system, CentOS, can be modified or patched as needed. For best practices, please refer to the official documentation: https://www.centos.org/docs/

Note: Any changes to files related to Delphix may result in an unusable system. These files are stored in the following locations:

  • /opt/delphix

  • /var/delphix

  • /var/log/delphix

To manage the appliance or the Operation System or to upgrade, you must have root access. The default root password is delphix. You should change this as soon as possible.

To navigate to the System screen, as seen below:

  1. On the right-hand side of the toolbar, click the configuration icon. 

  2. Click System

Here you can view the current version of Delphix Reporting.

Delphix Reporting 2.0.1.0 Upgrade instructions

Delphix Reporting 2.0.1.0 was released to fix some security issues and bugs. One bug that we found in the 2.0.0.0 version is the upgrade functionality from UI is not working properly. Thus, customers using 2.0.0.0 cannot upgrade to 2.0.1.0 from the UI. Here are the instructions and requirements for upgrading to Delphix Reporting 2.0.1.0.

Procedure

  1. Download delphix-reporting-installer-2.0.1.0.sh and delphix-reporting-installer-2.0.1.0.sh.md5 from Delphix download site
  2. Copy the delphix-reporting-installer-2.0.1.0.sh to the server that hosts Delphix Reporting. Here we assume the file is copied to directory /tmp on the server.
  3. SSH to the Delphix Reporting server with the username root and its password. The default password is delphix.
  4. Run command sha256sum /tmp/delphix-reporting-installer-2.0.1.0.sh and make sure its output is the same as the content of delphix-reporting-installer-2.0.1.0.sh.md5
  5. Run command sh /tmp/delphix-reporting-installer-2.0.1.0.sh

After step 5, users can verify the state of the services by running commands service delphix-collector status and service delphix-webapp status
