Configuring Staging Oracle Server

This section explains how to configure a staging Oracle server which is required if you want to use a point-in-time restore to revert the database to a state before an undesired transaction or before a point of failure.

A staging server is also required when exploring backups created without application-aware image processing. For more information, see Exploring Oracle backups.

Consider the following:

  • A staging server must have the same Oracle version as both the source and target Oracle servers.
  • If you plan to restore databases with Automatic Storage Management enabled, both staging and target servers must have ASM enabled.
  • Oracle Database Express Edition cannot be used as a staging system.

For Windows-based VM

To configure a staging server for Windows-based machines, do the following:

  1. Go to the main menu and click General Options.
  2. Go to the Oracle tab and specify the server name to which you want to connect.
  3. Specify a user account to connect to the Oracle server that you want to use as a staging system.
  4. Specify the path to the Oracle Home folder.

Click Browse to find the associated folder automatically.
