Restore / Accessing staging server

To restore data, make sure to configure user accounts as follows:

  • When restoring to a Windows-based machine, the account must be a member of the local Administrators group on the target machine. In addition, if ASM is used, then such an account must be a member of the ORA_ASMADMIN group (for Oracle 12 and higher).
  • When restoring to a Linux-based machine, the account must be a Linux user with root permissions on the target machine and have membership in the following groups: OSASM [if ASM is used] (typically asmadmin), OSDBA (typically dba), Oracle Inventory group (typically oinstall).

Mind that for restore from RMAN backups, the root privileges for the user account are not required.
