This topic describes the steps to Refresh a VDB from a specific Timepoint or from Latest.
You can refresh from any point on Timeflow using SCN, location, or timestamp.
You will need the following information:
- The VDB name
The TimeFlow location, SCN, or timestamp of the point you want to provision from.The default domain user created on Delphix Engines is now admin instead of delphix_admin. When engines created before 5.3.1 are upgraded to 5.3.1 or later they will retain their old username 'delphix_admin'. To avoid complications Delphix recommends creating users with an admin role and then Disabling delphix_admin.
Login to CLI:
$ ssh admin@<delphixengine>
Determine the TimeFlow
> timeflow "<dSource>" timeflowRanges > commit > cd
Perform the Refresh from specific Timepoint
> database > select <VDB name> > refresh > set timeflowPointParameters.type= (one of TimeflowPointBookmark, TimeflowPointBookmarkTag, TimeflowPointLocation, TimeflowPointSemantic, TimeflowPointTimestamp as appropriate) > set timeflowPointParameters.location= (the location, timestamp, or bookmark you wish to refresh to) > set timeflowPointParameters.timeflow= (the timeflow associated with location) > commit
Perform the Refresh from Latest
> database > select <yourdatabase> > refresh > set timeflowPointParameters.container= (Parent of VDB) > commit
