Windows support

Delphix supports both "Windows with Desktop Experience" and Windows Core (Windows without Desktop Experience) server installations.

Windows support

After applying Windows updates or .NET updates for Windows Server 2016 or 2019, servers used to host Delphix VDBs may experience the following symptoms:

  • CPU usage on the Windows target host may increase significantly, possibly reaching 100%.

  • PowerShell may take up to 10 seconds to launch from the command line.

For more information on how to resolve this issue, see KBA6024

64-bit Windows only

Delphix supports only 64-bit versions of Windows on VDB Target Hosts and Staging Target Hosts. This restriction does not apply to Source Hosts.

Check OS compatibility

The Windows Server OS versions on the Staging Target Hosts and VDB Target Hosts must be compatible. Please refer to the compatibility matrices below.

SQL server failover clusters

There are additional restrictions on supported Windows and SQL Server versions for SQL Server Failover Cluster target environments.

For details, see Adding a SQL Server Failover Cluster Target Environment

Supported SQL versions

SQL server version

Delphix version

SQL Server 2012 (11.0)

Delphix 3.1.2 and beyond

SQL Server 2014 (12.0)

Delphix 4.1.3 and beyond

SQL Server 2016 (13.0)

Delphix 5.1.4 and beyond

SQL Server 2017 (14.0)

SQL Server 2019 (15.0)

Delphix 5.3.7 and beyond

SQL Server 2022 (16.0)

Delphix 8.0.0 and beyond

Supported SQL server editions

  • Standard

  • Enterprise

  • Developer

SQL server editions

For Staging Target Hosts, you can use SQL Server Standard Edition only if the source databases do not use SQL Server Enterprise Edition specific features, such as partitioned tables.

However, it is important for VDB target hosts to use the same edition of SQL Server software as the source database so that all features available in the source are also available in the VDB.

Supported Windows connector versions

You can always download the current Windows connector version from the Delphix Engine from the following locations:

Delphix Dynamic Data Platform versions before 6.0.5.0:

CODE
http://<name of your Delphix Engine>/connector/DelphixConnectorInstaller.msi

Delphix Dynamic Data Platform versions 6.0.5.0 onwards:

CODE
http://<name of your Delphix Engine>/connector/DelphixConnectorInstaller.exe

The Delphix Connector and Engine are generally backward-compatible.

Delphix connector version 1.18.0 and beyond is compatible with Delphix Engine 6.0.5.0 and later releases.

Delphix connector version 1.17.0 or earlier is compatible with Delphix Engine 6.0.4.0 and earlier releases

Checking the windows connector version

After installing the connector, you can perform the following steps to determine the Windows connector version.

  1. Navigate to the Windows Environment.

  2. In the search box on the taskbar, type Add or Remove Programs or launch StartControlPanelProgramsPrograms and Features.

  3. On the Add or Remove Programs screen, locate Delphix Connector and then click on the software to check the version installed.

Windows connector matrix

The following table details the supported Windows Connector and JRE versions for the corresponding Delphix Dynamic Data Platform versions.

To know more about the changelogs for the respective Windows connector version, refer to the Windows connector changelog.

Source environment operating system compatibility

Source environments can be running any supported Windows operating system version. There are no compatibility requirements between the source environment’s operating system and that of the target environments. For more information, see Overview of Setting Up SQL Server Environments.

Staging and target environment operating system version compatibility

The operating system version on the target environment that will contain the virtual databases must be equal to or higher than that on the staging target.

Source and staging environment SQL server version compatibility

The SQL Server version on the staging environment must be equal to that on the source environment.

Provisioning to higher SQL versions when the source is SQL server 2005

For SQL Server 2005, direct provisioning to higher SQL Server versions is only supported for provisioning to SQL Server 2012 or higher. You can first provision a VDB to SQL Server 2005 and then upgrade it to a higher version by following the steps outlined in Upgrading SQL Server VDBs

Supported SQL server backup software

Delphix currently supports the following software for dSource backups:

  • SQL Server native backups - all formats, including but not limited to

    • Striped

    • Compressed

    • Append
