This section explains how to select a state which is going to be applied when restoring Oracle databases or Data Guard, 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 a primary node. Once a primary node is restored, Veeam will use it to restore all the standby nodes from Data Guard.
- 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 the existing databases on a target server will be replaced with that of the backup file.
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 to start the restore wizard and specify the target server explicitly.
