#CloneAttack online ! (and in person at #ECO14 & #DOAG14)
I’ll be at #ECO14 today in Raleigh,NC. Catch me in person to get a copy of #CloneAttack. I’ll also be at #DOAG14 in Nuremberg Nov 18-20 running an official #CloneAttack along side of #RacAttack and #RepAttack. Will also be at #BGOUG in Sofia Bulgaria Nov 14-16.
For online #CloneAttack info read on:
We are starting a limited publicly accessible download of a trial version of Delphix and lab.
If interested connect with me on linkedin at www.linkedin.com/in/kylehailey/ and I will send you the download info via linkedin messages.
Delphix trial version and lab:
The lab consists of 3 virtual machines. The virtual machines are available from the download link as OVA files. You can start up the virtual machines by simply clicking on the OVA files after you have VMware fusion installed.
Virtual Machines are
Source Linux machine with Oracle database
Target Linux machine with just Oracle binaries. We will create thin clone databases, ie virtual databases here
Delphix machine already linked to the source database on the source Linux virtual machine
Because we can not distribute Oracle 11gR2 software, we ask that you download that from Oracle and we provide a script to automate the install of Oracle software on the Source and Target Linux virtual machines.
The lab requires 220.127.116.11 of Oracle (other versions will fail automated install using our scripts, but you are free to install them manually yourself on the VMs and then use those versions with Delphix)
Import the OVAs into VMWare (right click on OVA, chose open with VMware Fusion)
Note IP Address on the boot screen of each VM (via Console)
Download the Oracle 18.104.22.168 install for “Linux x86-64″
execute automated Oracle install script (from directory with Oracle install zip files)
On MAC lsde_install_mac_v1.2.sh
On PC lsde_install_v1.2.sh
On Linux lsde_install_v1.2.sh
Login to the Delphix Admin portal (type in the IP address of Delphix VM in a browser)
Go to Manage->Environments
Choose the appropriate environment and then change the Host Address to the IP address from step 4
Refresh Environment (click on the blue & green double arrow on the Target and then Source)
Pre-download 22.214.171.124 for “
Mac or Linux: VMware Fusion (free trial version download)
Win: VMware Workstation (free trial version download)
Win: Cygwin download
at least 8 GB RAM
at least 50 GB free disk space, but preferably 100 GB free
at least 2 Ghz CPU, preferably dual-core or better
Here is the download URL and login info. Please let me know your experiences. We are actively improving the lab experience and depend on your feedback to improve it.

My previous blog postson the labs with general info is at
NOTE: this is a trial version is for functional testing and not for performance testing. The trial version is a version trimmed down for a laptop install thus its not valid for performance tests. For performance tests Delphix requires a minimum of 32GB of RAM and 8 vCPUs and vmxnet3 network driver. This same trial version can successfully be used for performance tests by being installed on an ESX machine and configured for performance but high end performance setups should ideally include assistance from Delphix pre-sales. Also the performance of the underlying disk subsystem that Delphix relies on will, obviously, be a major factor in any performance. Finally for performance work, ALL router hops between Delphix and target machines that run the virtual databases should be eliminated.
Here is a video showing the lab setup. A later video will show some exercises we can do with the lab setup.
Here is a video of an exercise to do on the lab VMs after install
– when booting the source/target VMs, the boot process occasionally hangs at:
Bringing up interface eth0:
Determining IP information for eth0…init: vmware-tools pre-start process (779) terminated with status 1
a simple VM restart solves the problem.
need adobe flash to run Delphix console in a browser
$ yum install flash-plugin
NOTE Fedora Linux install
use Linux lsde_install_v1.2.sh
but change “ping -n ” to “ping -c ” and ” grep TTL ” to “grep rtt”
will work on a new linux install script
Fedora VMware Workstation install
