Hi,

I am trying to restore the database with RMAN Backup on a different server.

Unfortunately, the path to which RMAN originally took the backup to - '/backup/oracle/rman/prod/' does not exist on the test server.

i have to put in on '/u01/oracle/rman/test/' which is the only file system with enough space to fit all the backup pieces.

How do I make RMAN recognize these backup pieces in the new path?

I know for a fact that all will be fine if the same path can be created on the test server as well.

Can you please help?

TIA.

KV

I am sorry.

I am not sure I understand.

How will creating a link make RMAN recognize the backup pieces in the test server? I dont have a mount point /backup on the test server.

Apologies again,

I can not create new mount points. The space restriction on the test server does not allow any new mount point creation.

If I could do that, I would have restored the backup pieces straight to the folder!

Thanks

>I can not create new mount points.
I never mentioned anything about "mount point".

What EXACTLY prevents you from issuing the 2 following commands?

mkdir -p /backup/oracle/rman
ln -s /u01/oracle/rman/test/ /backup/oracle/rman/prod/

& proceeding with the restore?
