This article is to document how to take a Snapshot outside of the normal snapshot policy time using the CLI, you can also do this in the GUI using the camera icon. A Snapshot of a VDB is similar to bookmarking a point in time in the life of the VDB.
- ssh into the delphix engine using delphix_admin credentials
Go into databases and select the VDB or dSource you would like to take a Snapshot of
ssh delphix_admin@dengine delphix > database delphix database > select vdb_test
You are now going to sync and commit the operation
delphix database "vdb_test" > sync delphix database "vdb_test" sync *> commit
You can verify the snapshot by going to snapshots and listing them
delphix database "vdb_test" > /snapshot delphix snapshot > ls
