  1. Login to Delphix Management application.

  2. Click Manage > Datasets

  3. Click on Add dSource.


  4. In the Add dSource wizard, select the CockroachDB source config you just created on the staging host.


  5. Select the dSource type from the drop-down available on dSource wizard. Refer different dSource Types.

  6. Enter the CockroachDB specific parameters for your dSource configuration.

    1. dSource Type Type of dSource

    2. dSource (Seed) Details.

      2. IP Address / Hostname of the Staging Cluster IP Address / Hostname of the interface for the staging Cluster (default

      3. Staging CockroachDB Port Number Staging DB port for cluster’s inter-node communication.

      4. Staging CockroachDB Console Port Number Staging Console port for HTTP requests.

      5. Secure Mode Option to run the CockroachDB server in secure mode.

      6. Certificate directory path The absolute path to the certificate directory, it must have valid certificates containing the IP address or hostname for the CockroachDB server.

      7. CockroachDB Cluster Node Count Number of nodes that consists of Staging CockroachDB cluster. Minimum: 3 and Maximum: 9

      8. CockroachDB Parameters Additional CockroachDB configuration parameters to start the CockroachDB cluster.

        1. Parameter Name CockroachDB Cluster configuration parameter name

        2. Parameter Value CockroachDB Cluster configuration parameter value

      9. Then click Next to proceed further.

  7. Provide the details for dSource Name and Target group on the dSource configuration page and click Next.
