What's New?

You will get the flexibility to set the log level, log file size, and log retentions for remote host side logging through the ebs_plugin.conf file.

  • The plugin discovers the application on the source appsTier environment during the discovery operation.

  • New password fields are available to the Delphix Engine users.

  • This release adds support for EBS 12.2 with 12C on Solaris SPARC.

  • Context file-based adcfgclone for EBS 12.2 with 19C database as per the Oracle Documentation.

  • This release improves hooks for database provisioning.

Plugins to support EBS virtualization are not automatically included in the Virtualization Engine deployment and can be installed by the end-user after uploading the plugin through the Manage > Plugin screen.
