    Hi,

    This retention policy is currently defined on my dSource: Snapshot 30 days, Logs 7 days.
    Well,
    I need to keep a snapshot I did 5 days ago during 300 days (Easy) but I want to be sure that for this snapshot only I will have also 24 hours of archive logs available !

    How to do the trick ?

    Cheers,
    Marcellus C.

    Hi Marcellus,

    We have a help document that you may find useful. The document "Configuring Retention on Individual Snapshots" details the steps to configure retention for specific snapshots. The steps from that document are as follows:

    1. Log into the Delphix Admin application as a user with Delphix Admin privileges.
    2. Select Resources > Capacity.
    3. Expand the object (dsource or vdb) to modify.
    4. Expand the snapshots. (it may take a few minutes for the individual snapshots to appear)
    5. Configure the desired value in the 'keep until' column, either the number of days or tick forever.
    I hope this helps. If you have any questions or issues, please feel free to let me know.

    Thanks!

    Srish

    I did this but somehow I am unable to access the logs on that day . I meant I could not do point in time refresh using that snapshot which I modified retention forever.
