BR*Tools Example: Restoring from a SAP on Oracle Full Database Backup

Restore the entire database when the database is corrupted or lost.

Before You Begin

  1. Perform a full backup.
  2. If you use the util_file (BACKINT) interface, modify the init<SID>.utl file. For information on the parameters, see Supported SAP for Oracle Util File Parameters.
  3. If you use the rman_util interface, modify the init<SID>.sap file. For information on required and optional SBT parameters, see SBT Parameters.
  4. If the init<DESTINATION_SID>.sap file does not exist, create the file. On the command line, type the following:

    brrestore -d util_file -b2 \#NULL -m $ORACLE_HOME/dbs/init<DESTINATION_SID>.sap

  5. Set the database to the correct mode defined in the table.
