Overview

This topic describes the information that is required for the initial installation and configuration of the Delphix Engine.

The attached InstallWorkbooks list all the values you need to capture, as well as sample values. Choose the workbook for your hypervisor. In addition to required values, the InstallWorkbooks also list useful data to document as part of the installation.

Hypervisor Specific Options

As a virtual appliance, Delphix supports a number of different hypervisors and configurations.  Your choice of hypervisor and network configuration determines what data you need to gather for the first step in the installation of Delphix.
