This topic describes how to migrate a virtual database (VDB) from one target environment to another.
In certain situations, you may want to migrate a VDB to a new target environment. For example:
When upgrading the host on which the VDB resides
During a general data center migration
To distribute the VDB load across target environments
This is easily accomplished by first disabling the database, then using the Migrate VDB feature to select a new target environment.
You must first disable the VDB before migrating it. Follow the steps outlined in Enabling and Disabling SAP ASE VDBs
You must have already set up a new target environment that is compatible with the VDB that you want to migrate.
Login to your Delphix Management application.
Click the VDB you want to migrate.
From the Actions menu (...) select Disable.
Click Disable to confirm.
From the Actions menu (...) select Migrate.
In the Migrate window select:
Environment: the new target environment for the VDB
User: select a user
Installation: the installation where you want to migrate
Click Migrate to confirm your selections.
From the Actions menu (...) select Enable.
Click Enable to confirm.
Within a few minutes, your VDB will re-start in the new environment, and you can continue to work with it as you would with any other VDB.
