-c|-confirm

This BRRECOVER command option specifies whether the recovery is attended or unattended. In unattended mode, BRRECOVER only stops at menus and yes/no queries. At other prompts, it continues processing with the default value.

Input syntax: -c|-confirm [force]

Default value: Attended mode. You need to respond to the prompts and menus generated by BRRECOVER. You also have to check the default choices and input values suggested by BRRECOVER.

force: When you specify the option -c force, all confirmation messages are suppressed. In addition, BRRECOVER automatically selects default choices and accepts default input values in menus. You can use this option when you regularly make database copies for an up-to-date test system, or for similar actions where you are certain of the outcome.

Do not use the option -c force when recovering a production database. In this case, follow the BRRECOVER prompts and menus, and carefully check the default choices and input values suggested by BRRECOVER.
