hello experts,

how should i get DBID to recover my database after server crashed to restore it on new host.

i have only:

1) controlfile autobackup was on so i have control file and spfile.
2) copy of recent backup including archivelog files.

to restore and recover database with same name on new host i need to set DBID , then how should i get it?


thanks in advance...........

I don't see why you need to know the DBID. Use the syntax

restore controlfile from 'name_of_the_autobackup_file' ;

Create a pfile from the spfile and edit it.
Or use ALTER SYSTEM to modify the spfile.

thanks alot sir,


i have done it.

but on next step while restoring the database i have copied the backupset in any directory on new host successfully.

then 1 problem :

as we know backup location and backup related other information are stored in controlfile.

now i have restored controlfile from autobackup
now i dont know what location is stored for backup location in this controlfile
so i can put backupset as that was in the crashed host.

then question is that how should i change this location in controlfile?
or
how should i get the original backup location?


thanks alot again.......

The lone backup you have contains only the control file (given its size 9.55M, I doubt it contains the whole database).

What is the state of your database? (nomount? mount?)
Have you a backup of the data files? Where (directory)?

thanks sir,

Quote:

rman> restore database;

i executes it in in MOUNT mode.


Quote:

i backed-up my database as :

rman> backup database;

it should backup whole database containing datafiles also.

am i missing anything else in my backup command?
to backup :
1) datafiles
2) redologfiles
3)controlfiles

so that i can restore database successfully on new host.

thanks again.....

From what you showed us, you missed to move ALL the backup files on the new server.

on new host, i restored spfile and even controlfile from autobackup
and open database in MOUNT mode then run :

rman> restore database;


then it throws errors

You are missing to register the new backup location in the control file:
CATALOG START WITH '<the top directory containing the backup files>';

There are two places where you can find it without opening your database.

1- DBID is the part of filename of control file auto-backup. Locate file
2- Any RMAN saved session. DBID is displayed by the RMAN client when it starts up and connects to your database
