SAP Oracle Restore Options (General)

Use this dialog box to select restore options.

Destination Client/Computer/Server

Displays the name of the client computer to which the selected data will be restored. To change the destination computer, select one from the list. The list includes clients:

  • Which are established as clients within the CommCell.
  • Clients with Operating Systems that support the cross-platform restore operation from this client. (Refer to the topic titled Cross Platform Restore Operations in Books Online for additional information.)

By default, data is restored to the same computer from which it was backed up.

Number of streams to use for restore

Use this space to set the number of data channels through which data is restored.

Restore Control File

Specifies whether to restore the control file from the latest control file backup to its original location.

Restore Archive Log

Specifies whether to restore the archived redo log files based on the following:

  • If the archived redo log files exist in the LOG_ARCHIVE_DEST location and are not corrupted, the backed up archived redo log files are not restored.
  • If the archived redo log files do not exist or are unusable, the backed up archived redo log files are restored to the directory specified in LOG_ARCHIVE_DEST.

This field and Restore Data are selected by default. You must select this field and/or Restore Data before you run the restore.

Restore Data

Specifies whether to restore the database based on the selected options.

This field and Restore Archive Log are selected by default. You must select this field and/or Restore Archive Log before you run the restore.

Recover

Specifies whether to recover the database by applying any incremental backups and archive redo logs that are needed to bring the database back to the current time.

Before using the Recover option in combination with the Point-in-Time option to recover the Oracle database to a point-in-time, read Caution on the Use of RESETLOGS.

To use this option for SAP Oracle, you must also select Restore Archive Log; otherwise, you can only manually recover the database.

Click to refresh the screen with the current status of the database

Advanced

Click to select additional restore options.

Save As Script

Click to open the Save As Script dialog, which allows you to save this operation and the selected options as a script file (in XML format). The script can later be executed from the Command Line Interface using qoperation execute command.

When you save an operation as a script, each option in the dialog will have a corresponding XML parameter in the script file. When executing the script, you can modify the value for any of these XML parameters as per need.
