Oracle Recovery Manager ( RMAN) Hands On Practice
By AVargas 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
