Oracle Database Recovery
Implementing a Restored and Recovery Strategy
Phase I – Steps for Diagnosing a Problem

1. Determine if the database instance is available and the database is open.
2. Attempt to start the instance and open the database.
3. Shut down the instance if problems occur while starting it or opening the database.
4. Check the trace files for possible problems.
5. Check the alert_SID.log file for the possible problems.
6. Determine the appropriate recovery method by asking the following questions for each scenario:
1. Which recovery operations are available?
1. Complete Recovery
Closed Database Recovery
Open Database, Offline Tablespace Recovery
Open Database, Offline Tablespace, Individual Datafile Recovery
2. Incomplete Media Recovery
Cancel Based Recovery
Time Based Recovery
Change Based Recovery
2. Which recovery operations are appropriate for the particular problem?
3. Are disaster recovery procedures in place?
4. What need to be restored to proceed with recovery?

Phase II – Restore Appropriate Files

1. Determine which file(s) to restore
2. Determine what state the instance and database must be in to perform the recovery.

Phase III – Recover Database

1. Perform the appropriate method of recovery

Phase IV – Backup Database

1. Determine if another full offline backup is required.

Time Based Recovery
This is used to recover the database up to a specific point in time:

* When data is lost; check the alert file for the approximate time of the error.
* When part of a non-mirrored online redo log becomes corrupt and the approximate time of the corruption is known

1. Shutdown the listener.
2. Shutdown the database.
3. Restored all datafiles from last night backup(except the control files and redo log files).
4. Goto svrmgrl
5. svrmgrl> connect internal
6. svrmgrl> startup mount
7. svrmgrl> recover database until time ‘YYYY-MM-DD:24:MM:SS’
8. svrmgrl> alter database open resetlogs;
9. svrmgrl> shutdown
10. svrmgrl> startup
11. Do an offline backup

Recently, I had to recover a database using time based recovery but due to some corrupted nightly backup files, I was not able to do a normal recovery. The error message was:

SVRMGR> recover database until time 1998-06-03:10:18:00
ORA-00283: recovery session canceled due to errors
ORA-01122: database file 3 failed verification check
ORA-01110: data file 3: ‘/dbase/u04/oradata/PRD/temp01PRD.dbf’
ORA-01203: wrong incarnation of this file – wrong creation SCN
The way to get around this is:

1. Shutdown the listener.
2. Shutdown the database.
3. Restored all datafiles from last night backup (except the control files and redo log files).
4. Goto svrmgrl
5. svrmgrl> connect internal
6. svrmgrl> startup mount
7. svrmgrl> select * from v$recover_file: it displayed 3 datafile that are not recoverable:
* /dbase/u04/oradata/PRD/temp01PRD.dbf
* /dbase/u04/oradata/PRD/ndx01BUD.dbf
* /dbase/u04/oradata/PRD/ndx01HLP.dbf
8. svrmgrl> alter database datafile ‘/dbase/u04/oradata/PRD/temp01PRD.dbf’ offline drop; repeat for the other 2 files.
9. svrmgrl> recover database until time ‘YYYY-MM-DD:24:MM:SS’
10. svrmgrl> alter database open resetlogs;
11. svrmgrl> drop tablespace TEMP including contents; svrmgrl> drop tablespace BUD_NDX including contents cascade contraints;
12. Create new tablespaces.
13. Create new indexes.
14. Shutdown the database.
15. Startup the database.
16. Do an offline backup.

Oracle Database Migration
Two ways to move a database:

1. For a small database.
1. Do an Export.
2. Create a new empty database.
3. Do an Import.

2. For a large database (in the old system):
1. svrmgrl>alter database backup controlfile to trace.
2. Take a Cold Backup.
For a large database (in the new system):
3. Restore on the new system (all the datafiles and redo log files). Modified file name if necessary.
4. Create New initSID file.
5. Modify the trace file from step 1 to reflect changes in file names and change the database name if desired.
6. Set the ORACLE_SID to the new SID.
7. Run the sql from step 1
8. Open the database.

Oracle Database Backup
3 ways of doing database backup:

1. Full Offline(Cold) Backup
2. Full Online(Hot) Backup – archiving must be on
3. Export Utility Backup

Oracle Database Archiving
To Turn Archive Log On

1. Modified the initSID.ora file to uncomment these 3 lines:
log_archive_start = true
log_archive_dest = disk$rdbms:[oracle.archive]
log_archive_format = “%S.arc”
2. Goto svrmgrl
svrmgrl> connect internal
svrmgrl> startup mount pfile=initSID.ora
svrmgrl> alter database archivelog;
svrmgrl> alter database open

Oracle Stored Procedure
To Create a Procedure

in sqlplus
sql> create procedure scott.sal_incr
sql> (v_empno IN NUMBER,
sql> v_incr IN NUMBER)
sql> as begin
sql> update scott.emp
sql> set sal = sal + v_incr
sql> where empno = v_empno;
sql> end;

To Execute a Procedure

in sqlplus
sql> exec sal_incr(v_empno, v_incr);

To look for User Procedure

in sqlplus
sql> select * from user_objects where object_type = ‘PROCEDURE’;

To look at Procedure Code

in sqlplus
sql> select text from user_source where name = ‘PROCEDURE_NAME’;
