Will target environment refresh impact the availability of my VDB's?

Someone kicked off an environment refresh of my target environment by accident.  They then canceled it.  Now snapshots of my VDB's are failing with "all cluster hosts ... for database ... are unavailable."  I believe all I need to do is kick off another environment refresh of my target system and let it run to completion.

However, this is the first time I will be performing an environment refresh against a target environment.  I want to make sure that this action will not impact the running of the VDB's in that environment.  I couldn't find anything in the documentation saying what impact, if any, an environment refresh will have.  Before proceeding any further and risking an outage, I wanted to confirm that my VDB's will remain running while an environment refresh is occurring on the target hosts.

Thanks,
KC

Hi Kelly,

An environment refresh should not impact running VDBs. It will push out a fresh copy of the Delphix toolkit and try to rediscover objects on the host:

https://docs.delphix.com/display/DOCS/Refreshing+an+Oracle+Environment

If you wait for approximately five minutes after performing an environment refresh, if the correct status does not reflect in the Delphix GUI, please open a new technical support case and upload a support bundle.

Thanks,
  Neal
