RE: Production DB Crash Recovery process - Some immediate advice ASAP pls




DATABASE is UP & OPEN Hemant, Jeremiah.

Thanks indeed for all the Support

It was a Case of 1 Datafile NOT being in sync with the rest of Database.
This had been added after the Last HOT backup(being used in recovery).

This File was made OFFLINE & DB was opened on completion of recovery.

Thanks again Folks for responding ever so quickly.

Good Wishes


P.S. Hemant, if you in SG? I am in Bangalore & can meet, if you come by
sometime. Jeremiah, I assume is in Seattle but nevertheless very welcome
to come to Bangalore.

A) If this was an online backup and you are attempting to recover the
whole database
AND the *last* END BACKUP in that backup set was *after* 6pm of 11-Feb,
then Oracle would still want recovery.

B) If you are using the *current* controlfile or any controlfile whose
is *after* 6pm of 11-Feb, then Oracle would still want recovery.

C) If any of the datafiles on disk that you are applying recovery to is
*after* 6pm of 11-Feb,
then Oracle would still want recovery.

If you've received ORA-1194 when attempting to OPEN, that doesn't mean
you cannot continue with that backup.
1. Identify the actual datafiles that you need in that backup set.
2. RECREATE the Controlfile (with a CREATE CONTROLFILE sql -- even if
from the current image of the controfile, you can exclude the newer
(ie those *after* 6pm of 11-Feb)
from the script.
4. Issue CANCEL at the last ArchiveLog you want to apply

Note : IF  A) or C) above applies to your case, you should be
from an *OLDER* backup.

Importance: Low

If you are using a backup controlfile, then you should let create the
datafiles when it comes to that point in the redologs. You should not
the datafiles that are consistent with the CURRENT point in time, if you
trying to recover the whole database to a point in time in the PAST.

Do the new datafiles appear in v$datafile?

What do the recovery SCNs look like in v$recover_file? Find the high
values in this view to find which datafiles are out of sync in the
