Oracle RMAN ( Recovery Manager ) Restore Recover Tutorials -4

Hi,

I will tell you about the RMAN (Recovery Manager) tool that we use frequently Backup and Restore operations in Oracle Databases in this fourth article of my tutorial series.

 

Read my rman backup tutorial series before this article with following links. We will use these backups in this restore recover tutorial series.

 

 

then read older article of this tutorial series with following link.

 

 

 

 

I will show point in time recovery with RMAN in this post.

 

Firstly Open Oracle Instance in nomount mode with pfile like following.

[oracle@MehmetSalih ~]$ sqlplus / as sysdba

SQL*Plus: Release 19.0.0.0.0 - Production on Tue Mar 26 13:54:48 2019

Connected to an idle instance.

SQL> startup nomount pfile='/home/oracle/pfile.ora';
ORACLE instance started.

Database Buffers 285212672 bytes

Secondly restore controlfile from backup like following. After restore controlfile is done, change database mode from nomount to mount mode.


[oracle@MehmetSalih ~]$ rman target /

Then we will recover database with set until time command like following.

set until time "to_date('2019-03-26:10:30:00', 'yyyy-mm-dd:hh24:mi:ss')";

 

Using set until time command will provide us point in time recovery like following.

 

RMAN> run
{
set until time "to_date('2019-03-26:18:00:00', 'yyyy-mm-dd:hh24:mi:ss')";
recover database;
}2> 3> 4> 5> 6> 7>

Then open database with resetlogs mode.
