Hi all!!
I've got a mess...
A few time ago a tried to apply logs via rman an it worked perfectly.
Yesterday I tried it again but it didn't work. Logs are in the dir they are supposed to but it just says the follwing:

[oracle@test ~]$ /u02/app/oracle/product/10.2.0/bin/rman target /

Recovery Manager: Release 10.2.0.1.0 - Production on Fri Jan 9 11:10:07 2009

Copyright (c) 1982, 2005, Oracle. All rights reserved.

connected to target database: TEST3 (DBID=3781993725, not open)

RMAN> recover database;

Starting recover at 09-JAN-09
using target database control file instead of recovery catalog
allocated channel: ORA_DISK_1
channel ORA_DISK_1: sid=214 devtype=DISK

starting media recovery
media recovery complete, elapsed time: 00:00:00

Finished recover at 09-JAN-09

RMAN>


...when I query the logs applied they are the same as before the recover.
What might be causing this?

Thanks in advance,
Daniela.

Oracle thinks that it already applied al the logs required for it to be in a fully recovered state.

You can try to restore the database and do an incomplete recovery.

Do you see the logs listed with LIST ARCHIVELOG ALL. If not, you should try to CATALOG them and see if that helps.

The 'list archivelog all' didn't show me the logs I ment to apply, so I "catalogued" them.
Before executing the recover database command, I executed this:
select sequence# from v$archived_log;
... which showed me the logs I wanted to apply ...
Then I made a "recover database" but it keeps saying ...

RMAN> recover database;

Starting recover at 22-JAN-09
allocated channel: ORA_DISK_1
channel ORA_DISK_1: sid=210 devtype=DISK

starting media recovery
media recovery complete, elapsed time: 00:00:00

Finished recover at 22-JAN-09

RMAN>


Then I wanted to open the database to see if it had really applied the logs but it asks to be opened with "resetlogs"
I don't want to reset logs!!!

What can I do?
Isn't there a way to restore without having to reset logs?

Ohh!! I'm so sorry!!
All I had to do was to open the database with "noresetlogs"!!
... but when I queried the database, the new rows that should appear didn't.

Heeelllppp!!

Have you followed the process indicated in Manually Determining and Resolving Archive Gaps ?

I guess I missunderstood the concept... I wanted to apply logs to a primary database an they can only be applied to a standby. Am I wrong?
It's got sense... isn't it? I should have thought it for a moment...
Thanks a lot for your help an for you time.

Daniela.

Maybe I'm confused on what scenario you are trying to perform? The topic is listed under DataGuard ?

You are trying to recover the PRIMARY database ? If so, what steps did you take to perform the restore/recovery ? What provoked the need for recovery ?

Do you have the redo logs still in tact ?

Yes, Data Guard... but don't worry, it's just a test environment. I'm trying to solve things that can happen in case of "disaster".

I have restored a backup in a test server from a production database. I just wanted to know if I could apply the logs since the last backup from the production DB.

Just testing...

OK...I think I understand your scenario now. Let me see if I have it right:

* You created a test database from production.
* You have been using the test database.
* You now want to bring the test database up-to-date with the production by applying the production database's archive logs.

If this is the case, then no, you can't perform this operation.

Where's the standby in this setup ?

I have not really been "using" it, just mounted the database and wanted to apply logs. But I guess it's much the same...

I ment that when I tried applying logs to the Standby database it did work. ... I thought it could be done on both Primary and Standby databases.
