Hi ,

I have a question about the procedure to restore a db if there in only full export backup (and control file backup). What are the steps to be followed in this scenario?

Thanks
Nirav

You can't restore from an export. This is the reason and export is NOT a backup.

yes but suppose all we have is just full db export and a control file backup to trace then what can be done get back the database- to the extent possible.

You create a new, empty database and just import (i prefer schema-by-schema).
Traced controlfile is not of much importance (may be you can recreate the tablespace/control file/redologs with same name/location/size).
Same information can be obtained from the exported dump itself(well, not about control files/redologs).
You can get list of tablespace/users and their tablespace affiliations/grants etc.

I would rather have a copy of init.ora and my SLA Smile
