Restoring SAP for Oracle Data to the Current Location (In Place)


You can restore SAP for Oracle data to the current location (in place). You can restore the database, individual tablespaces, the control file, and/or the archive log. You can restore to the current time or to a point in time.

Before You Begin

Set the database to the correct mode:

Is the control file included in the restore?

Mode to put the database in






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

    The Instances page appears.

  2. Click the instance that contains the data that you want to restore.

    The instance page appears.

  3. In the Recovery points section, select the date for the backup that you want to restore, and then click Restore.

    The Backup content page appears.

  4. Select the content to restore, and then click Restore.

    The Restore options dialog box appears.

  5. On the In place tab, specify the following:

    1. In Number of streams, enter the number of streams to use for the restore.

    2. Under Restore, select the check boxes for the data to restore:

      • Database

      • Control file

      • Archive log

    3. If you enabled IntelliSnap backups of the subclient, to revert the data to the time when the snapshot was created, select the Use snap revert check box.

      Selecting this check box restores the entire LUN to the point when the snapshot was created, overwriting all the modifications to the data since the snapshot was created.

      This check box is available only if the snapshot engine used for the IntelliSnap backup supports the revert operation.

    4. Under Recover to, specify whether to restore to the current time or to a point in time.

  6. Click Submit.

What to Do Next

After the restore is complete, if the current database is not consistent, you can restore the database to a point other than the current time.
