This topic describes the procedure for rewinding a VDB.
Rewinding a VDB rolls it back to a previous point in it’s TimeFlow and re-provisions the VDB. The VDB will no longer contain changes after the rewind point.
To rewind a VDB, you must have the following permissions:
A user with admin credentials can perform a VDB rewind on any VDB in the system.
Login to the Delphix Management application.
Under Datasets, select the VDB you want to rewind.
On the Timeflow tab, select the rewind point as a snapshot or a point in time.
If you want to use login credentials on the target environment other than those associated with the environment user, click Provide Privileged Credentials.
Click Yes to confirm.
Using TimeFlow Bookmarks
You can use a TimeFlow bookmark as the rewind point when using the CLI. Bookmarks can be useful to:
Mark where to rewind to – for example, before starting a batch job on a VDB
Provide a semantic point to revert back to in case the chosen rewind point turns out to be incorrect.
For a CLI example using a TimeFlow bookmark, refer to CLI Cookbook: Provisioning a VDB from a TimeFlow Bookmark.
