RE: RE: Recovery Help?



Thanks for the replies Ian and Ruth.

Ruth's suggestion below results in the following:

SVRMGR> recover using backup controlfile until cancel;
ORA-00279: change 3668927078 generated at 07/02/2004 02:42:41 needed for thread 1
ORA-00289: suggestion : /u06/archive/SDS0000166990.ARC
ORA-00280: change 3668927078 for thread 1 is in sequence #166990
Specify log: {<RET>=suggested | filename | AUTO | CANCEL}
ORA-01547: warning: RECOVER succeeded but OPEN RESETLOGS would get error below
ORA-01194: file 3 needs more recovery to be consistent
ORA-01110: data file 3: '/u02/oraindex/sds/usrindex01.dbf'

Mount U02 is the drive that was lost and now has the newer dated db files...

Any ideas from here ?

Have they tried: 'recover using backup controlfile until cancel;' and
cancelling when it asks for the archivelog from July 2.

Just a thot!

Subject: Recovery Help?

I'm seeking help/advice from the list on behalf of a client that no longer
has a DBA - and has a production DB utterly screwed up - hope you can help
me point them in the right direction.... I've tried the basics ... but then
I'm only knowledgeable enough in this area to be dangerous!

Situation: Remote DB (Linux/8.1.7) - they lost a drive/mount point - and
then lost the frame relay for best part of 3 weeks (thanks to Sprint
efficiency). The system tried to perform automated disk-to-disk backups
(cold, via crontab) then to tape, but failed when it hit the bad drive -
each day!

Result: Their DB is mostly at July 14 - with the restore of the bad drive at
Aug 3rd (includes a System datafile, 1 data and an index datafile). When I
try to recover for them, it calls for archive logs dated July 2nd - and they
only have ones going back to July 3rd..... Their backup cycle is a 7-day
cycle (with no secure copy archived off) - so they have no good consistent
backup to restore from...

At this stage, they'd be real happy just to get a db back, even if several
weeks old. My viewpoint at this stage is that there are no options ... but
then I'm hoping for them that maybe one of you knows differently???

Thanks for thoughts ...
