This article explains how Druva Phoenix performs an Oracle database restore.

Restore Workflow

The following diagram depicts the data flow at the time of restoring Oracle databases.


Step Operation
Step 1 Administrator selects a snapshot and initiates a restore.

Step 2

Administrator can choose to restore database from a snapshot or to a point in time.

Step 3

Druva Phoenix determines the restore option selected by the administrator.

  • In case of the automated recovery, administrator can choose to restore the complete database to the original server or manually recover the database to the destination server.
  • In case of the manual restore, administrator must specify the destination server and restore location. 

Step 4

  • For automated recovery, Druva Phoenix automatically runs RMAN scripts to restore and recover your database.  When you select the entire database to restore, Druva Phoenix lets you restore the complete database automatically to the original Oracle server from where it was backed up.
  • For manual restore, the requested snapshot is unpacked and downloaded to the specified restore location on the Oracle server host. The backup download location on the local Oracle server host is /<Restore_location>/<Day-MMM-DD-Hour-Min-Sec-YYYY> where:

    The Restore_location is the name of the directory and Day-MMM-DD-Hour-Min-Sec-YYYY is the folder created to store the downloaded data and is derived from the snapshot that you specified to restore the database.

    The snapshot location is mapped to the Oracle server host and the DBA can now use RMAN commands to recover databases on the required Oracle server host.
