This topic describes how to manually refresh a vFiles.

Refreshing a vFiles will re-provision the vFiles from its parent. As with the normal provisioning process, you can choose to refresh the vFiles from any snapshot available in its parent. However, you should be aware that refreshing a vFiles will delete any changes that have been made to it over time. When you refresh a vFiles, you are essentially resetting it to the state you select during the Refresh process. You can refresh a vFiles manually, as described in this topic, or you can set a vFiles refresh policy, as described in the topics Managing Policies: An OverviewCreating Custom Policies, and Creating Policy Templates.

Although the VDB no longer contains the previous contents, the previous Snapshots and TimeFlow still remain in the Delphix Engine and are accessible through the Command Line Interface (CLI).



  1. Login to the Delphix Management application using Delphix Admin credentials.

  2. Click Manage.

  3. Select Datasets.

  4. Select the vFiles to refresh.

  5. On the TimeFlow tab, click the Refresh icon in the lower right-hand corner.
  6. Select a snapshot from which to refresh.
