Adding a windows environment

This topic describes how to add a Windows environment to the Delphix Engine for use with unstructured files.

All Windows source and target environments containing unstructured files must have the Delphix Connector installed to enable communication between the environment and the Delphix Engine. The instructions in this topic cover initiating the Add Target process in the Delphix Management application, running the Delphix Connector installer on the environment, and verifying that the environment has been added to the Delphix Engine.



  1. From the machine that you want to use, log in to the Delphix Management application.

  2. Click Manage.

  3. Select Environments.

  4. Next to Environments, click the Actions menu and select Add Environment.

  5. In the Add Environment wizard Host and Server tab, select:

    1. Host OS: Windows

    2. Host Type: Target.

    3. Server Type: Standalone.

  6. Click Next.

  7. In the Environment Settings tab click the download link for the Delphix Connector Installer. The Delphix Connector will download to your local machine.

  8. On the Windows machine that you want to want to use as a target, run the Delphix Connector installer. Click Next to advance through each of the installation wizard screens.

    The installer will only run on 64-bit Windows systems. 32-bit systems are not supported.

    1. For Connector Configuration, make sure there is no firewall in your environment blocking traffic to the port on the target environment that the Delphix Connector service will listen to.

    2. For Select Installation Folder, either accept the default folder or click Browse to select another.

    3. Click Next on the installer's final 'Confirm Installation' dialog to complete the installation process and then Close to exit the Delphix Connector Install Program.

  9. Return to the Delphix Management application.

  10. Enter the Environment NameHost Address, Delphix Connector PortOS Username, and OS Password for the target environment.

  11. To provide your own Oracle Java select the Provide my own JDK checkbox and click Next.

  12. In the Java Development Kit tab enter the absolute path to your Oracle JDK and click Next

  13. Click Submit.

As the new environment is added, you will see two jobs running in the Delphix Admin Job History, one to Create and Discover an environment, and another to Create an environment. When the jobs are complete, you will see the new environment added to the list in the Environments panel.


  1. On the Windows environment, in the Windows Start Menu, select Services.

  2. Select Extended Services.

  3. Make sure that the Delphix Connector service has a Status of Started.

  4. Make sure that the Startup Type is Automatic
