Restoring an Oracle RAC Table to a Different Location (Out of Place)

You can restore Oracle RAC tables to a different location.

Before You Begin

The Collect table metadata option for the subclient must be enabled for any backups you want to use for restoring tables. For more information, see Adding Oracle RAC Subclients.


  1. From the navigation pane, go to Protect > Databases.

    The Instances page appears.

  2. Click the instance.

    The instance page appears.

  3. On the Overview tab, in the Recovery points section, select the backup to restore, and then click Restore.

    The Backup content page appears.

  4. From the Tablespace view list at the top of the window, select Table view.

    The database's list of tables appears.

  5. Select the tables that you want to restore, and then for each selected table, click the Actions button actions button***use the other one ->86655*** to select or deselect dependent or referenced tables.

  6. Click Restore.

    The Restore options dialog box appears.

  7. Select the Out of place tab.

  8. From the Destination server list, select the host to restore to.

  9. From the Destination instance list, select the instance to restore to.

  10. Choose whether you want Commvault software to create an auxiliary instance during the restore job:

    • To make the Commvault software create the auxiliary instance on the destination server, leave the Create auxiliary instance checkbox selected.

    • To use an existing auxiliary instance, clear the Create auxiliary instance checkbox, and then from the list select an auxiliary instance on the destination server.

  11. To change the number of streams to use for the restore, in the Number of streams box, enter the number of streams to use.

  12. To specify the location where the auxiliary instance is created, in the Staging path box, type the location.

    The staging path must have enough free space for the control file, the Oracle diagnostic directory, and the required tablespaces.

  13. If you specified that you want to use an existing auxiliary instance with the Create auxiliary instance checkbox, in the PFile box type the PFile location.

  14. For Recover to, specify how you want to apply the archive files to the data files.

    The SCN option restores the database to the System Change Number (SCN) that you specify. The SCN tracks the timing of transactions in the database. The SCNs are stored in the control files and the datafile headers. You can recover the database to the most recent existing SCN number in the control file, which is the most recent consistent database state.

  15. To specify additional Oracle Data Pump Export utility (expdp command) parameters, type them in the Export parameters box.

  16. To specify whether the restore overwrites the current tables or only puts the exported tables in the staging location, select the Table options:

    • Click Dump to save the table export dump files to the staging location.

    • Click Import to overwrite the current tables.

  17. Click Submit.
