Two personas are involved in restoring a database backed up using Phoenix:

  • Phoenix administrator: The Phoenix administrator runs a restore job on the Phoenix Management Console. After the restore job completes, the snapshot is downloaded as an Oracle RMAN backup on a location of the selected Phoenix Backup Store.
  • Oracle Database Administrator: The Database Administrator runs RMAN commands that fetch backup data from the Phoenix Backup Store and restore the database on the Oracle instance.

Oracle Database Restore Workflow

Step Operations

Step 1

Phoenix administrator selects a snapshot and initiates a restore.

Step 2

Phoenix administrator can restore a snapshot to the original Phoenix Backup Store or an alternate Phoenix Backup Store. 

Step 3

The snapshot is unpacked and downloaded as an Oracle RMAN backup to a location on the Phoenix Backup Store. The Oracle RMAN backup download location on the Phoenix Backup Store is /mnt/restores/<backupmount_name>/<restore_job_id>/data where:

  • The mount-name is the name of the mount you selected to restore.
  • Job id is the ID of the restore job. You can get the job ID from the jobs page. 

Step 4

The snapshot location is mapped to the RMAN host so that RMAN can use data stored on it to restore databases to the Oracle instance. 

Step 5

The Database Administrator restores the Oracle RMAN backup to the Oracle instance.
