Hi All,

Then you cannot recover after the last archived log you have before the one you lost.

Is this a homework question, or a real situation?

This is the real question as my TL asked me to try this and I have searched over the internet for the steps as well but it did not helped me out. Sir So I thought to seek help from you experts.


Thanks

What is impossible is impossible (even for a French DBA whatever Napoleon said).

He actually said "Ce n'est pas possible, m'écrivez-vous : cela n'est pas français" ("It is not possible, you write me: this is not French"). Wink

May I be woring Sir but I want to describe the scenario to both of you.

I took backup of my database when there were 50 archived log files which were backed up. Then I created some users and tables and did manual switching of the logfiles, SAY 20 more archived files were generated and I took the backup of the new 20 files as well.

So now I have total backup of 70 archived logfiles. Now If In case say file number 30 is lost or deleted by mistake, will I be able to recover all the database any how such that ORACLE skips file number 30 and my data is recovered till file 70.

I hope I have made myself clear.

Thanks
Deepak

Explain how Oracle can skip hundred of modifications you (and it) made and keep a consistent database.

In your case, you have a backup of this archived log so nothing is lost and you have nothing to do RMAN will restore it in order to recover your database.

I fully agree with your point SIR, but is it possible that ORACLE can skip the data of that particular archive which is delete and recover the remaining data, because I know that the file that is lost or deleted the data of that particular file can not be recovered.

Can we recover the remaining data which is present in other files?

Thanks
Deepak

NO (back to my first answer but you seem to not understand it, maybe this single word will be more efficient).

Only a lunatic would set this parameter.
I would fire any of my DBAs who did it.
