Provisioning a Yugabyte VDB

  1. Navigate to Manage, and select Datasets.

  2. Select the dataset and the snapshot that you want to provision from. Click the provision VDB icon to open the provision VDB wizard.

  3. Select the target host from the dropdown on which VDB needs to be created.

  4. Enter the following values for the target configuration:

    1. VDB Name: A unique database identifier.

    2. Mount Path: NFS mount path where dSource snapshot will be mounted by Engine ( ex. /mnt/provision/targetdemo)

    3. Run Restore from the provided backup: Select the checkbox if the restore needs to be performed on the created cluster. Unselect the checkbox in case of a seed (empty) database.

    4. Database Name: Database to be restored from backup.

    5. Enable Authentication: Check to enable authentication on the created cluster.

    6. Database Password: This field will be available if authentication is enabled. Fill in the desired password corresponding to the Yugabyte user.

    7. Number of Nodes in Cluster: Enter the number of master and tserver pairs in the cluster to be created.

    8. Server Details: Enter each server (master / tserver) details.

      1. Custom Node Identifier: A custom identifier for easy identification for the user (not used by the connector).

      2. Server Type: Select the type of server: master or server

      3. Host Environment: Select the host on which the master/tserver has to be provisioned.

      4. Host Environment User: Select the user corresponding to the host.

      5. Node IP: IP using which the node could be reached from other nodes. It needs to be a public IP specifically in the case of multinode architecture.

      6. Host BindIP / Hostname for Cluster: Listen to address for the node

      7. Port List: Specific ports required by the master/tserver for the server to be initiated.

      8. Server Tuning Parameters: Custom tuning parameters that are optional to the customer and are used to configure the instance.

  5. Provision connector-based VDB. Enter the following value:

    1. VDB Name: Delphix target cluster name

    2. Target group: Delphix target cluster group

  6. Select a policy for VDB, and select Next.

  7. Select masking for VDB if needed, and select Next.
