Oracle RAC Restore Examples Using the RMAN Command Line Interface

Use the Oracle Recovery Manager interface to perform SnapProtect restores when the SnapProtect interface does not support the RMAN commands or options, or when you do not want to use the CommCell Console interface.

SnapProtect supports the following RMAN restores:

  • A full database restore
  • A secondary copy restore
  • A multiple stream restore
  • A restore to the same host
  • A restore to a different host
  • A restore to a single node
  • a forced restore of archived logs on an ASM Database

To learn more about using RMAN with SnapProtect, we recommend that you explore the examples or code snippets.

Multiple Stream Operation

The Oracle application command line operations that run on multiple streams share the same Job ID in the Job Manager. If all the streams return the status as failure, then the job is marked as failed. If one of the streams fails, the job is submitted to the other stream for completion.

When you multiplex Oracle operations with multiple streams, each stream uses different drives by default.

When you perform application command line operations, a new ClDBControlAgent.log file is generated along with ORASBT.log to record the command line jobs.

When you use different storage policies for archive log backups and command line backups, and submit a data and log command line backup, the archive logs are backups use the log backup storage policy and datafile backups use the command line storage policy. If you submit a control file backup, then it uses the command line storage policy.
