Restoring an Oracle RAC Table to Its Current Location (In Place)

Updated

You can restore Oracle RAC tables to the same location. By default, when you restore tables to the source database, the restore operation overwrites the existing tables in the destination database.

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.

Procedure

  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 to select or deselect dependent or referenced tables.

  6. Click Restore.

    The Restore options dialog box appears.

  7. Select the In place tab.

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

  9. 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.

  10. 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.

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

  12. 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.

  13. Click Submit.
