    • Restore Production Database to Development Platform A step-by-step example Howard Hackworth Research Scientist and Database Administrator Eli Lilly and Company, Lilly Biotechnology Center, San Diego, CA [email_address] 12 years DBA experience. OCP 8i, 9i, and 10g.
    • Purpose
      • To demonstrate the steps taken to restore your production database to an alternate host.
      • Oracle® Database Backup and Recovery User's Guide 11g Release 2 (11.2).
    • Overview
      • As part of your DR (Disaster Recovery) procedures you may want to restore your production database to a different host.
      • This allows you to:
        • test your current backups.
        • rehearse the necessary steps required in the event of a real emergency, such as hardware failure on the production host.
    • Recommendation
      • Rehearse, document, and practice your ability to recover the database on a regular basis.
    • Overview of setup and configuration
      • Oracle Enterprise Edition 11gR2. Linux RH5 NetBackup 6.5.5
      • Identical environments:
        • Identical versions of Oracle.
        • Same ORACLE_HOME and ORACLE_BASE.
        • The archive log directory is defined to be the Flash Recovery Area:
      • You know the DBID.
      • Control file autobackup feature enabled with the default format.
    • NetBackup MML considerations
      • Restoring from tape using the NetBackup MML
      • MANDITORY requirement on the NetBackup Master Server.
      • On the NBU Master server the following directory and file must exist:
      • /[netbackup install]/db/altnames/No.Restrictions
    • Restore File System Directories
      • Restore the prod related file system directories to the development host.
      • $ORACLE_BASE /admin/prod
      • $ORACLE_BASE/diag/rdbms/prod
      • $ORACLE_BASE/cfgtoollogs/dbca/prod
      • $ORACLE_BASE/cfgtoollogs/emca/prod
      • $ORACLE_BASE /flash_recovery_area/PROD
      • On your development host server, delete all files and directories from the restored archive log destination(s).
    • Shutdown the DEV instance
      • Shut down OEM for dev
      • % emctl stop dbconsole
      • Shutdown the DEV instance
    • Set the PROD environment on the development server
      • Set ORACLE_SID to PROD.
      • Insure there is a password file for PROD.
        • If the prod password file does not exist, create one. This allows you to login as ‘sys as sysdba’ to the newly restored database.
        • Be sure it matches the password for sys on prod.
    • Restore
      • If you are restoring the database for test purposes, never connect to the RMAN recovery catalog throughout the test.
      • Connect to RMAN without the catalog .
      • Set the DBID for the new database.
    • Restore
      • RMAN> startup nomount;
      • startup failed: ORA-01078: failure in processing system parameters
      • LRM-00109: could not open parameter file ‘/app/oracle/product/11.2.0/dbs/initprod.ora'
      • starting Oracle instance without parameter file for retrieval of spfile
      • Oracle instance started
      • RMAN will fail to find the server parameter file, which has not yet been restored, but will start the instance with a "dummy" file.
    • Restore
      • Restore the spfile to pfile.
      • RMAN> run {
      • allocate channel t1 device type sbt;
      • send 'NB_ORA_SERV=NBU_MasterServer.com, NB_ORA_CLIENT=Original_Client.com';
      • set controlfile autobackup format for device type sbt to '%F';
      • restore spfile
      • to pfile '?/dbs/initprod.ora'
      • from autobackup;
      • shutdown abort;
      • }
    • Restore
      • Edit the server parameter file (if necessary).
      • Restart the instance with the restored parameter file.
      • RMAN> startup force nomount pfile='?/dbs/initprod.ora';
      • Oracle instance started
    • Restore
      • Restore the control file from an autobackup, then mount the database.
      • RMAN> run {
      • allocate channel t1 device type sbt;
      • send 'NB_ORA_SERV= NBU_MasterServer.com, NB_ORA_CLIENT= Original_Client.com';
      • restore controlfile from autobackup;
      • alter database mount;
      • }
    • Restore
      • Restore the database.
      • RMAN> run {
      • allocate channel t1 device type sbt;
      • send 'NB_ORA_SERV= NBU_MasterServer.com, NB_ORA_CLIENT= Original_Client.com';
      • set until sequence 929 thread 1;
      • restore database;
      • recover database;
      • }
    • Restore
      • Open the database and reset the redo logs.
      • RMAN>
      • RMAN> alter database open resetlogs;
      • database opened
      • RMAN>
      • RMAN> exit
      • Recovery Manager complete.
    • Memory Parameters modifications
      • Allow enough memory for both to run at the same time.
      • Updates to pfile (both prod and dev)
        • memory_max_target
        • memory_target
      • Update db_recovery_file_dest and reduce flashback retention period.
        • alter system set db_recovery_file_dest_size=250M scope=both;
        • alter system set db_flashback_retention_target=1440 scope=both; #24 hours
    • Building OEM
      • Drop existing OEM repository
      • % cd $ORACLE_HOME/sysman/admin/emdrep/bin/
      • % ./RepManager devhost.com <listener port> prod -action drop
      • Enter SYS user's password : xxxxxxxx
      • Enter repository user name : sysman
      • Create new OEM repository for the restored instance
      • cd $ORACLE_HOME/bin
      • % ./emca -config dbcontrol db -repos create
      • Enterprise Manager configuration completed successfully
    • Dropping the new copy of the PROD database
      • Stop OEM
      • ~% emctl stop dbconsole;
      • Shutdown the newly restored db and restart in Exclusive mode using the pfile.
      • SQL> shutdown immediate;
      • SQL> startup pfile='?/dbs/initprod.ora' mount exclusive restrict;
    • Dropping the new copy of the PROD database
      • Issue the drop database command
      • SQL> drop database;
      •   Database dropped.
      • Disconnected from Oracle Database 11g Enterprise Edition Release - 64bit Production
      • With the Partitioning, OLAP, Data Mining and Real Application Testing options
      • SQL> quit
    • Conclusion
      • A DBA can do everything else in the world wrong -- EVERYTHING.  We can fix that, we can resolve those issues.  But if they mess up backup and recovery – forget about it. You are hosed.
