Environment attributes for hosts with Oracle

This topic describes the attributes of Oracle-specific environments such as RAC Cluster Users, Listeners, and RAC configurations. You can manage these settings by the procedure described below.

  1. Navigate to Manage > Environments.

  2. In the Environments panel, click the name of an environment to view its attributes.

  3. Next to Attributes, click the Pencil icon to edit an attribute. 

    • For Oracle RAC environments select your node then click the Pencil icon.

Common environment attributes



Environment users

The users for that environment. These are the users who have permission to ssh into an environment or access the environment through the Delphix Connector. For more information on the environment user requirements, see the Requirements topics for specific data platforms.

Host address

The IP address of the environment host.

SSH Port

The SSH port number used for the environment.

Login Type

Select from:

  • Username and Password

  • Username and Public Key

  • Password Vault

Toolkit Path

The plugin path for the environment. Delphix uses the Toolkit path (Toolkit is a synonym for Plugin) for logs, mount points, and keeping lib files. 


Any other information you want to add about the environment.

Oracle environment attributes



Environment Name (RAC)

The Environment Name field under Attributes is used to provide the name of the environment host in the case of cluster environments. This field defaults to the IP address of the host unless you specify another name.

Cluster Name (RAC)

The name of the RAC cluster as retrieved during auto-discovery from the Oracle Clusterware Repository (OCR).

Cluster Home (RAC)

This is the full pathname of the directory in which the cluster or grid ORACLE_HOME resides, which contains the executables for the Oracle Clusterware. Besides containing the software for the Oracle CRS (Cluster Ready Services), this directory also contains the binaries for Oracle ASM (Automatic Storage Management).


The version of the RAC cluster as retrieved during auto-discovery from the Oracle Clusterware Repository (OCR).

Cluster User (RAC)

The OS user account with read-execute permission to access the ORACLE_HOME for the cluster/grid, as well as the ORACLE_HOME for the database.

NFS Encryption

Enabling encryption for NFS traffic of environment.

Host Address (RAC)

Public IP hostname or IP address for the specific node (or host) within the RAC cluster.

NFS Address

In the event that the network link to which “public hostname” of the RAC nodes reside is to be used only for command-and-control traffic (i.e. SSH, JDBC, etc), and not for network-attached storage, then this field is where the comma-separated list of IP addresses for the alternate network dedicated to NFS for network-attached storage.

Virtual IP (RAC)

Oracle RAC requires setting up virtual IPs to manage failover. This field informs Delphix which IP addresses to use when a failure is detected. Click the + to add another virtual IP domain and IP address. For more details view Overview of Virtual IP Addresses


The listener is used to connect incoming client requests to the database. See Adding a Listener to an Oracle Environment for more information.

Remote Listener

An Oracle TNS name resolves to an address or address list of Oracle Net remote listeners. This is the Oracle initialization parameter REMOTE_LISTENER, which must be the same on all RAC cluster instances. Click the + to add a remote listener.


Single Client Access Name is used to allow clients to access cluster databases.

SCAN Listener

Listener used with SCAN to establish client connections to the database instances in the RAC cluster.
