Validating Restores for Oracle

This option is an advanced restore option.

Validate the restore job before you run the job.

Restore validation checks the following:

  • The backup copies of the data and logs are intact and usable

RMAN simulates the restore job without the media to determine whether the restore can be successfully performed.

Once a validate job is complete, you can view the job log files to identify and correct any issues.


  1. On the Restore Options dialog box, click Advanced.
  2. On the Options tab of the Advanced Restore Options dialog box, select the Validate check box.
  3. Click OK to close the Advanced Restore Options dialog box.
