    Log in
         ssh delphix_admin@"yourengine"
    Determine the TimeFlow
         > "yourengine" > ls
         > "yourengine" timeflow "dSourcename" timeflowRanges
         > "yourengine" timeflow "dSourcename"> commit
         > "yourengine"> back
    Perform the Refresh from Specific Point
         > "yourengine"> database
         > "yourengine" database> select "VDBname"
         > "yourengine database "VDBname"> refresh
         > "yourengine" database "VDBname" refresh*> set timeflowPointParameters.type=(one of the following: TimeflowPointBookmark, TimeflowPointBoomarkTag, TimeflowPointLocation, TimeflowPointSemantic, TimeflowPointTimestamp as appropriate)
