About DBA-initiated restore and recovery for Oracle

DBAs can initiate restore jobs directly from the RMAN console. For example, you can specify the resources you want restored, and the number of channels to allocate for the restore job. Refer to your Oracle documentation for more information on using the RMAN console.

All DBA-initiated restore jobs are deleted after the jobs have completed.


If you attempt to use a DBA-initiated restore job to restore a datafile, a tablespace, or a database that is online, a message appears on the RMAN console. The message indicates that the restore cannot be performed because Oracle does not allow the restore of these items if they are online. However, this message is not reported to Backup Exec. Therefore, the DBA-initiated restore job is reported in Backup Exec as completing successfully.
