RMAN :: Duplicate Database Can't Read Backup-piece Location

Aug 28, 2013

Oracle 5I am creating a duplicate database using RMAN based on Oracle's documentation. I was successful up to running the duplicate command.Here is my command:DUPLICATE TARGET DATABASE vlab pfile='/<complete path of pfile>'; When I run the command, it tries to read from the backup files on production database - which is on anotehr node.Before then, I had backup piece copied to the node with the duplicate database.I ran this command to catalog the backup piece:catalog start with '/<complete path to backuppiece>'Error: no files to be unknown to the database On the other hand, when I run the command without cataloging the backuppiece, I get this error:

I have a doubt in RMAN. The scenario is: We take online backup on all days and offline backup on Sunday only. My question is do i need to copy the archives also in offline backup?

What happens when i shutdown the database (the database is in archivelog mode) and alter the database to be in noarchivelog and open the database to do offline backup.

Backup & Recovery :: ORA-19870 / Error Reading Backup Piece During Database Cloning

Mar 15, 2011

I am trying to clone a database on another server with different direcory structure. So that path on the source db server are /u04 whereas on on target db server it would be /u03.

Since this I am testing it on small database initially I have kept all datafiles, backup and archivelogs at /u04 and /u03 on the source and target db servers respectively Now I have copied the backups from source db server to target and since path is changed, I cataloged it

However during restore I am getting

Backup & Recovery :: Changing Location Of Data And Temp Files From Auto-backup Of Control-file?

Jan 26, 2012

I have an oracle autoback of controlfile and spfile. I am trying to restore the production database using this backup, into a new server with a different directory structure.

I have completed the following steps in the restore process.

1. Creating a pfile from spfile

2. Changing the the location of cdump, udump, bdump and the control files ( there are three )

3. Then creating a spfile from this pfile

I am stuck on the next step where to rename all the datafiles and tempfile and restore the database. Following is what I did.

After mounting the database in RMAN, tried to run the following.

RMAN> run
2> {
3> allocate channel c1 device type disk
4> ;
5> @/home/oracle/rman_scripts/newloc.rman
6> SET NEWNAME FOR DATAFILE 1 TO '/u02/oradata/dorian/system01.dbf';
7> SET NEWNAME FOR DATAFILE 2 TO '/u02/oradata/dorian/undotbs01.dbf';
8> SET NEWNAME FOR DATAFILE 3 TO '/u02/oradata/dorian/sysaux01.dbf';
9> SET NEWNAME FOR DATAFILE 4 TO '/u02/oradata/dorian/users01.dbf';


I am getting the following error message.

While cloning using RMAN DUPLICATE command, one can convert all files from various locations to new locations by using DB_FILE_NAME_CONVERT. One can also retain the same locations with no conversion by using NOFILENAMECHECK. My question is what if I want to convert some, and not convert others?

I am new to Oracle, like to get clarified on below;

1. From where can we run the RMAN Clone script?


Are there any constraints on running the RMAN Script from the Source DB Host - PRDHOST?

If I am running it from PRDHOST, do I have to have the initdupdb.ora available on PRDHOST?

What are advantages and disadvantages on running the script on Source & Destination Host?

Backup & Recovery :: Query On Cloning Database Across Platform

Mar 16, 2011

As I understand we can't clone database across platform using Rman, as Rman backup taken on say Unix is useless to be recovered on Windows. Though I think of Export and Import, will copying the datafiles, logfiles, controlfile will serve purpose for cloning across platform?

Note that I do not mean Transportable tablespace here. Only copying cold backup across platform

RMAN :: Looking At Different Location To Restore On Physical Standby (10g)

Feb 12, 2013

I have 2 databases. Primary ( DB1 ) and Standby ( STBY1 ). My standby database went kaput, and i have as a result deleted the standby database in order to re-create it from a full primary backup.

Oracle 10g R2 on Server 2003.

I have followed several guides, and at this time i have done the following:

- Configured standby re-do logs on primary
- backed up current controlfile for standby
- backed up database plus archivelog
- configured the tnsnames

The problem is here. I connect to RMAN from standby

rman nocatalog
connect target sys/password@ DB1
connect auxiliary /
set until scn xxx;
duplicate target database for standby dorecover;

I receive an error message saying that it cannot find the file location of the backups that its trying to find. I see in the error that it tries to look locally for

E:FLASH_RECOVERY_AREA DB1 BACKUPSET2013_02_12), however the actual location is (E:FLASH_RECOVERY_AREA STBY1 BACKUPSET2013_02_12)

I have read that the locations need to be the same, however the instance names are different, and i thought i changed the pfile to accommodate that. My assumption is that i have made an error in the pfile. However i cannot see any issues there. Some things that i have changed in the pfile for standby:

RMAN :: Give Output File Location In Crontab Using ( > )?

Aug 2, 2013

I need to take RMAN full backup by every Sunday night and Wednesday night . I have the netbackup script which will take the backup to media. 

Question is:1. We have 15 - backup scripts for 15 DB in that server , so if i configure crontab for backup do i need to give all 15 scripts one by one or (*) will work .    ie) 00 20 * * 3,7 /app/oracle/rman/scripts/hot_db_<sid>.sh    

instead of this if i give  :  00 20 * * 3,7 /app/oracle/rman/scripts/hot_db_*.sh then it will works fine or not ? 2.

Already my backup will create .output file in the same location , do i need to give output file location in crontab using ( > ) ? 3.

Is the above crontab timing is correct ? (3,7) for Wednesday and Sunday 8pm? so Sunday is 0(zero) or 7 ?

Backup & Recovery :: Data Files Backed Up To FRA Instead Of Specified Location?

Jun 24, 2013

I am trying to backup my entire database's files :

[oracle@testing-oracle-1 ~]$ rman target /
Recovery Manager: Release - Production on Mon Jun 24 16:09:54 2013
Copyright (c) 1982, 2009, Oracle and/or its affiliates. All rights reserved.
connected to target database: ORCL (DBID=1341263457)
RMAN> list backup;

using target database control file instead of recovery catalog specification does not match any backup in the repository

new RMAN configuration parameters:
new RMAN configuration parameters are successfully stored
FOR DEVICE TYPE DISK TO '/u01/app/oracle/backupsets/control_files/cf_%F.BCKP';2>


I see that a backup set was created to "/u01/app/oracle/flash_recovery_area/ORCL/backupset/2013_06_24/" , in spite of my specification.

So I asked RMAN to list all the backups I have:

RMAN> list backup;

List of Backup Sets
BS Key Size Device Type Elapsed Time Completion Time

Piece Name: /u01/app/oracle/backupsets/818957425_1_%r.BCKP


Here I see that 4 backup sets have been created.The backup sets 1 & 3 containing the archived redo logs (818957425_1_%r.BCKP and 818957451_3_%r.BCKP) are placed as I wanted in /u01/app/oracle/backupsets/ dir.

The file containing the Control File and Spfile (cf_c-1341263457-20130624-00.BCKP) is placed as I wanted in /u01/app/oracle/backupsets/control_files/ dir.However, The backup set file containing the data files(o1_mf_nnnd0_TAG20130624T161026_8wjkb2tg_.bkp) is placed under the directory /u01/app/oracle/flash_recovery_area/ORCL/backupset/2013_06_24/ ,and I don't understand why.

When I backup my database without the archived redo logs - it is saved correctly:

RMAN> delete backup;
using channel ORA_DISK_1
List of Backup Pieces
BP Key BS Key Pc# Cp# Status Device Type Piece Name


1. Why aren't my data files backed up to the location I specified when I backup using PLUS ARCHIVELOG syntax?

2. Why are my redo logs saved to two different backup sets and not just one?

3. Is there a way to combine backup of all files (data files, control file, spfile, redo logs & arch redo's) in one backup set, one file?

Backup & Recovery :: 2 Separate RMAN Backup One Backup Is Of Only Datafile

Jan 24, 2011

I have 2 seperate rman backup one backup is of only datafile ,spfile and controlfile which i am able to restore and recover without any problem say bkp1 taken at 10 am

other set of backup is of only archive log files of same day but later time than datafile backup say bkp2 taken at 8pm...if i restore and recover bkp1 and try to restore bkp2 it gives error datafile exist (possibly due to fact both backup have control file)

if i just restore bkp1 and try to restore bkp2 so that i can do one recover at time
it gives error datafile permission issue (possibly due to fact both backup have control file)

I want to restore database upto 8pm time how can i use both bkp1 and bkp2 to do it(restore datafiles and apply all archive logs on it)
