You can refresh from any point on Timeflow using SCN, location, or timestamp.

  • The VDB name
  • The Timeflow location, SCN, or timestamp of the point you want to provision from. 

Login to CLI:

$ ssh delphix_admin@<delphixengine>

Determine the TimeFlow


> timeflow "<dSource>" timeflowRanges
> commit
> cd

> set timeflowPointParameters.location= (the location, timestamp, or bookmark you wish to refresh to)
> set timeflowPointParameters.timeflow= (the timeflow associated with location)
