Validating Restores

If you perform a validating restore job, the RMAN will simulate a restore job and verifies whether the backup copies of data and logs required for the restore are intact and usable.

Use the following steps to validate a restore job:

  1. From the CommCell Browser, navigate to Client Computers | <Client> | Oracle.
  2. Right-click the <Instance>, point to All Tasks and then click Browse and Restore.
  3. Select Latest Backup and click View Content.
  4. Optional: Use non-default Browse and Restore options. See Browse and Restore.
  5. From the Browse window, select the data you want to restore in the right pane and click Recover All Selected.
  6. Click Advanced.
  7. Click the Options tab.
  8. Select the Validate check box. This validates previously run backups to ensure the integrity of the data for successful restores.
  9. Click the Copy Precedence tab and select the Restore from Copy Precedence checkbox.
  10. In the Copy Precedence box, type the copy precedence number for the backup copy.
  11. Click OK.
