Restore RMAN to new server and refresh with Archivelog apply

Source Database
—————

::: Directory Structure :::
ORACLE_HOME : E:\oracle\product\10.2.0\db_1
RMAN Backup : E:\rman_backup_full
Control Files : E:\oradata\ecc
DataFiles: E:\oradata\ECC
Archivelog Destination: E:\archivelogs
adump : e:\oracle\product\10.2.0\admin\ecc\adump
bdump : e:\oracle\product\10.2.0\admin\ecc\bdump
cdump : e:\oracle\product\10.2.0\admin\ecc\cdump
udump : e:\oracle\product\10.2.0\admin\ecc\udump

1. create pfile=’E:\eccprod.ora’ from spfile;

 

2. rman target /

backup incremental level 0 TAG ‘ECC_DAILY_FULL’ database filesperset 4;
backup archivelog all not backed up 1 times;
exit;

 

3. Copy RMAN backup files and pfile to Target Database directory in same structure

 

Target Database
—————

::: Directory Structure :::
ORACLE_HOME : E:\oracle\product\10.2.0\db_1
Control Files : E:\oradata\ecc
RMAN Backup : E:\rman_backup_full
DataFiles: E:\oradata\ECC
Archivelog Destination: E:\archivelogs
adump : e:\oracle\product\10.2.0\admin\ecc\adump
bdump : e:\oracle\product\10.2.0\admin\ecc\bdump
cdump : e:\oracle\product\10.2.0\admin\ecc\cdump
udump : e:\oracle\product\10.2.0\admin\ecc\udump

Make sure RMAN directory structure and Datafiles and Control Files Directory structure is identical as Source DB server else you have to use DB_FILE_NAME_CONVERT and LOG_FILE_NAME_CONVERT parameters

1. Create required folders in the Target database server

adump
bdump
cdump
udump

Control File Location
Datafile Location

2. Create a service using oradim (if on windows) or with the pfile startup database in nomount mode

 

oradim -NEW -SID ecc -SYSPWD sys123 -STARTMODE auto -PFILE e:\eccprod.ora

 

3. Restore Database

rman target /

restore database ;

 

4. Now copy the new archivelogs to the archivelog directory and do recovery

 

rman target /

RMAN> catalog start with ‘E:\archivelogs’;

searching for all files that match the pattern E:\archivelogs
