The upgrade file for the version to which you want to upgrade should be downloaded from the Delphix download site. Please use the latest upgrade image from the download site since the checks will be updated on a need-by basis.

Delphix Upgrade images are approximately 5GB in size; it is recommended to have both a fast internet connection to the Delphix download site as well as to the Delphix Engine.

The upgrade image should be downloaded or moved to a location accessible to the computer used for navigating the Delphix Management application.

Upgrading to 6.0.0.0 is only supported from 5.3.6.0 or later. If you are running a version older than 5.3.6.0, you must first upgrade to 5.3.6.0 or later before upgrading to 6.0.0.0. For customers running on a release earlier than 6.0.0.0 and needing to upgrade to 6.0.0.0 or higher, please contact Delphix support to help coordinate this upgrade.

If you are upgrading from a version < 6.0.0.0 before you begin the upgrade process, contact Delphix Support to perform some pre-checks.

For upgrades from versions > 5.3.6.0 and < 6.0.0.0, you will download a migration image that is specific to the virtualization platform that your Delphix Engine is running on. The platforms for which images are provided include:

  • Amazon AWS
  • Microsoft Azure
  • VMware ESX

For example, an ESX migration image will have a filename like Delphix_6.0.0.0_2019-12-06-09-07_Standard_ESX_Migration.tar.gz. 

For upgrades from versions >=6.0.0.0, you will download an upgrade image that is generic to all the virtualization platforms that your Delphix Engine is running on. The Upgrade image will have a filename like Delphix_6.0.1.0_2020-03-17-00-39_Standard_Upgrade.tar.

SHA256 checksums, which can be used to verify the integrity of any downloaded files, are available via download.delphix.com. Each download link should list a sha256sum  checksum underneath. Additionally, newer releases may also contain a downloadable SHA256SUMS file, containing the checksums of all files in that directory.

To calculate the checksum of downloaded files, and confirm that they match those in the SHA256SUMS file, the following utilities can be used:

  • On Windows, certutil -HashFile <upgrade.tar.gz> SHA256 
  • On macOS or Unix servers with Perl installed, shasum -a 256 <upgrade.tar.gz> 

  • On Unix servers with coreutils  installed, sha256sum <upgrade.tar.gz>.
