    1. Log into the Delphix Admin application using Delphix Admin credentials.
    2. Select Databases > My Databases.
    3. Select a VDB to rollback.
    4. Click on the Stop Icon to shutdown the VDB.
    5. Select a VDB snapshot representing the desired rollback location.
    6. On the snapshot card, slide the LogSync slider to open the snapshot timeline.
    7. Select the point in time to which you would like to rollback the VDB.
    8. Click Provision.
    9. Enter the same SID and Database Name as the original VDB, but enter a different Database Unique Name, which must be unique for all databases.
    10. Review other provisioning parameters and edit as necessary.
    11. Click Finish.

    Note: The key to this procedure is the ability to provision a VDB at the desired rollback position with the same Oracle SID as the original. This ensures that the new VDB will be indistinguishable from the original VDB to any application, except for the data content being rolled back in time.
