Creating and Uploading Support Bundle to Delphix (KBA1459)

 

Before you Start

Bundles (also referred to as Support Logs) can be generated through the Delphix Admin application (GUI) or the command line interface (CLI).

Masking logs are included in the Support Bundle if Masking is enabled on the Delphix Engine (DE). If you need assistance accessing the please see: KBA1152 Collecting Support Bundle and Logs on Masking Engine.

How to Create Support Bundle using Delphix Admin GUI

  1. Log into the Delphix Admin application with delphix_admin credentials.
  2. Navigate to Help > (System if using 4.2 or older) Support Logs.
  3. To directly upload the bundle to Delphix Support select either:
    • Transfer 
    • Download
      This saves the bundle to your desktop.
  4. Enter Support Case Number, this will attach the Support Bundle directly to the specific support case. 
    Notification is added to the case specified once the support bundle has reached upload.delphix.com.
  5. Click OK.

How to Create Support Bundle using CLI 

  1. Use SSH to access your Delphix Engine using sysadmin.

  2. Navigate to the service Support Bundle.

  3. Choose 'Upload'.

  4. Set the 'caseNumber'.

  5. If your version of the DE includes the ability to include Analytics information in the support bundle and you are having a performance issue, set 'includeAnalyticsData=true'.

  6. Run the upload operation by submitting commit.

Uploading the File 

The file must be uploaded to the Delphix Support website to be reviewed by support personnel if:

  • the Support Bundle log was downloaded to your desktop using the Delphix Admin application
  • dmsuite.logs.gz file was created

Note:

Currently, downloading support logs from the CLI is not supported.

We recommend using Google Chrome, Firefox, or Internet Explorer 9 or newer to perform the upload.

To upload the log file:

  2. (Optional) Enter Support Case Number, if the bundle is being created in response to a specific support case. 
    Notification is added to the case specified once the support bundle has reached upload.delphix.com
  3. Click Add Files and browse to the support bundle file.
    Alternately, you can also drag the file directly onto the Upload screen and it will automatically begin to upload.  
  4. Select the file and click Start Upload.
