Hello,

I have been asked like, there is a table which has been accidentally dropped by the developer . And it has no backup also . Now the situation is to recover that lost table without using Tablespace Point in Time Recovery as it'll be affected for the other tables in the Tablespace .

Can we use logminer to recover that table ? or any other mechanism is there for that. Please provide me solution for that .

Kindly help me out .


Regards,
Raj

Yes you might use Log Miner, if you have all archived logs since the table was created.

But the right answer is:
0/ The correct way is Tablespace Point in Time Recovery
1/ The developer should be fired as he should not access the production database (if it is not a production database then a dropped table does not have to be recovered)
2/ The DBA should be fired if he have not a backup and is not able to recover the table
3/ The boss should be fired if he had allowed developer privileges on the production database

Michel

You have to enable DDL tracking (option sys.dbms_logmnr.ddl_dict_tracking) on Log Miner but if you have no recorded dictionary (in file or in redo log) when the table existed I'm afraid you can't have table and columns names and so you will have to guess which DDL statement is related to your table.

Mike, but if we are using TSPITR , we need to make the tablespace offline and for that one dropped table , all the other tables will be affected right . So any other way to overcome this .

No, TSPITR is done in an auxiliary database not on the current one.
