  2. set your environment
  5. PATH... etc

2. Then

  1. sqlplus / as sysdba
  2. alter system set <parameter> scope=<spfile|memory|both>
  3. exit

Note: You may have to restart the instance to pick up the new setting if the scope was spfile.

  1. log into the Delphix Engine GUI 
  2. Go to Manage > VDB Config Templates
  3. Select the template you would like to update and click to edit it.
  4. Once done editing hit the check mark and then Save
