Before starting an uncontrolled failover, keep a note of the source and target engine's IP address and engine UUID. These details are available on the Delphix Server Setup Application

Uncontrolled Failover Procedure

  1. On the source engine, create a replication spec for the dSources and VDBs, by clicking Replicate Now to replicate these dSources/VDBs to the target engine.
  2. To simulate a crash of the source engine, Power of the source engine.
