The Delphix Engine now automatically detects whether a target server has been rebooted, and proactively restarts any VBD on that server that was previously up and running. This is independent of the data platform. It is done as if you realized a target server was restarted and issued a start command from the Delphix Engine. This feature is compatible with Delphix Self-Service (Jet Stream) ordering dependencies and is limited to non-clustered VDBs.

This feature is not supported for the following data source types:

  • Oracle RAC VDBs
  • Oracle 12c vPDBs that are provisioned into a non-virtual CDB.
  • MSSQL cluster VDBs.

Automatic VDB Restart is supported for Oracle 12c vPDBs that are provisioned into a virtual CDB. Users can choose to enable or disable automatic restart at the virtual CDB level. There is not individual vPDB automatic restart setting.

Note that the scheduler checks every one minute if any VDB needs to be restarted. The Delphix engine waits for five minutes after it detects a host has restarted before trying to restart VDBs. The engine will keep trying to restart the VDB for 30 minutes before giving up.

To enable automatic restart, complete the following steps:

  1. When provisioning a new VDB in the VDB Provisioning wizard, check the Auto VDB Restart box. 
  2. Once the VDB has been provisioned, you will be able to turn Automatic VDB Restart on.
    1. In the Datasets panel, select the VDB.

    2. Select the Configuration tab.

    3. Select Source sub-tab.

    4. Select Database edit.
