Validating Restores

If you perform a validating restore job, the RMAN will simulate a restore job and verify whether the backup copies of the 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, go to Client Computers > client > Oracle.
  2. Right-click the instance, then go to All Tasks > Browse and Restore.

    The Browse and Restore Options dialog box appears.

  3. Select Latest Backup, and then click the View Content button.
  4. Optional: Use non-default browse and restore options. For more information, see Browse and Restore.
  5. Select the database, and then click the Recover All Selected button.

    The Oracle Restore Options dialog box appears.

  6. Depending on the type of restore to be run, click Restore in place or Restore out of place, and then click Next.

    The Oracle In Place Restore Options or Oracle Out of Place Restore Options dialog box appears.

  7. Click Advanced.

    The Advanced Restore Options dialog box appears.

  8. On the Options tab, select the Validate check box. This validates previously run backups to ensure the integrity of the data for successful restores.
  9. On the Copy Precedence tab, select the Restore from Copy Precedence check box.
  10. In the Copy Precedence box, type the copy precedence number for the backup copy.
  11. Click OK.
  12. Click OK.
