Oracle Recovery Manager ( RMAN) Hands On Practice
By AVargas-Oracle on Jun 05, 2008
Oracle Recovery Manager, RMAN, is at the same time simple and complex, it's sintax can be as direct as 'backup database' to make a whole database backup, and as complex as it can be to make possible the most sophisticated and complex backup and recovery tasks.
This post covers a series of tests I did prepare to show how Rman works, the tar of the scripts contained on the guide can be downloaded here.
This RMAN Hands-On guide, once you have configured the environment, can be followed in about 3 hours, it covers the basics of Backup, Restore and Recovery of Oracle Databases using RMAN.
This hands on practice is organized into 4 chapters
- RESTORE AND RECOVERY
Each chapter contains a set of scripts that can be executed in order to implement the practice, it teaches the following points:
- Build and administer an Rman Catalog
- Use different techniques for backing up a Database
- And the most important: How to restore and recover the database in different crisis scenarios
