    Hello,
    In our environment only Snap sync is enable, Log sync is disabled..so whenever Snap sync runs it create snapshot, so suppose if created 10 Snapshots in last 2months and now if we deleted few older snapshots so can we provision the database using latest snapshot...will it throw error..because my question is that whenever we do snapsync it record the changes since last snapshot or since d-source created...

    Every snapshot is full autoconsistent. Every snapshot is like a full RMAN backup. After you took a snapshot of your source, you can provision any virtual copy of your source.

    Best Regards.

    SnapSync is the Delphix process that makes snapshots. You can configure the SnapSync with a policy that schedules snapshots in the time.

    LogSync, instead, is a Delphix process (is not necessary) that collects the archive logs from Oracle.
