restore_mode

This parameter is used by BRRESTORE to determine the scope of restore activity.

Syntax:

restore_mode = all|all_data|full|incr|incr_only|incr_full|
incr_all|<tablespace>|<file_ID>|<file_ID1>-<file_ID2>|
(<object_list>]|partial|non_db

Default: all

Possible values:

·        all

Restores all tablespaces (without control files and redo log files)

·        all_data

Restores all tablespaces that are not pure index tablespaces or empty.

·        full

Restores a complete backup (that is, all backup files).

·        incr

Restores an incremental backup with RMAN.

·        incr_only

Restores changes to all files that were in the database at the time of the last full backup. See "Restoring Incremental Backups with Structural Changes" in Profile Parameters and BRBACKUP Command Options.

·        incr_full

Restores files that have been added to database since the last full backup. See "Restoring Incremental Backups with Structural Changes" in RMAN-Relevant Profile Parameters.

·        incr_all

Restores an incremental backup with RMAN and also restore all redo log, control, and non-database files and directories, if any.

·        <tablespace>

The files of the specified tablespaces are processed by the appropriate SAP utility.

·        <file_ID>

The file with this file ID are restored. For data files, this is the Oracle file ID. Control files can be addressed with the file ID 0. Online redo log files can be addressed using the file ID 0<n>, <n> is the redo log group number. Specify file ID 00 to restore all existing online redo log files. Temporary files are identified by negative numbers.

·        <file_ID1>-<file-ID2>

The files in this interval are restored.

·        <object_list>

You can enter an object list, as described in Initialization Profile init<DBSID>.sap. This list can also include the key word all. However, we recommend processing database files and non-database files separately.

·        partial

Restores all files from a partial backup without specifying them explicitly.

·        non_db

Restores all non-database files and directories from a backup without specifying them explicitly.
