Recover Oracle using an Offline Backup with RMAN
Before you can restore your database using RMAN, the following needs to be properly in place (this assumes a full system loss):
* The operating system must be installed
* The Oracle software must be installed
* The RMAN backup files must be available
* You must create the file systems that the database files will be restored to.
Once these pieces are in place you can restore your database. In the event of a full system loss you will need to replace:
* The SPFILE
* The Control File
* The database datafiles
If the SPFILE or control file is intact, you will not need to replace that component. The following sections walk you through each restore step. We assume you have followed the backup procedures earlier in this chapter, including the automated backup of SPFILES and control files.
