Restoring Latest or Point-in-Time State

This section explains how to select a state as of which to restore Oracle databases or Data Guard databases, including a point-in-time restore — to revert the database to a state before an undesired transaction or before a point of failure.

The behavior in case of a latest or point-in-time state restore is as follows:

  • Data Guard will be restored starting from the primary node. Once the primary node is restored, Veeam Explorer for Oracle will use it to restore standby nodes.
  • Database files will be copied to the original location and then mounted to the original Oracle home.
  • Databases from the backed-up ASM group will be restored back to the original ASM group.
  • All existing databases on the target Oracle server will be replaced with databases from the backup files.

Consider that restoring a latest or point-in-time state to the original Oracle server from storage snapshots is not supported. Use the Restore to another server command, as described in Restoring Database and Data Guard.
