Recover dropped tablespace using RMAN tablespace point in time recovery

This is new feature for Oracle 11g R2.Here I’m go to demonstrate How to recover dropped Tablespace using RMAN Tablespace point in time recovery.

Download PDF Document from here

Recover Dropped tablespace using RMAN TSPITR pdf

Right Click on this URL, Save Target as  & then Download it.

Step 1: Create Tablespace

SQL> conn / as sysdba

Connected.

SQL> create tablespace testtbs datafile 'd:\backup\testtbs01.dbf' size 100m; 

Tablespace created. 

SQL> create user testtbs identified by testtbs default tablespace testtbs; 

User created. 

SQL> grant connect,resource to testtbs; 

Grant succeeded. 

SQL> conn testtbs/testtbs;

Connected.

SQL> create table test(empname varchar2(20),city varchar2(20)); 

Table created.

SQL> insert into test values('azar','riyadh'); 

1 row created. 

SQL> insert into test values('jabar','chennai'); 

1 row created.

SQL> commit; 

Commit complete.

 SQL> conn testdb/testdb;

Connected. 

(Note : This table allocated for other tablespace , i just insert data for this table for check data consistent after doing TBPITR)

SQL> create table d(empname varchar2(20)); 

Table created. 

SQL> insert into d values('kareem'); 

1 row created. 

SQL> insert into d values('syed'); 

1 row created. 

SQL> commit; 

Commit complete.

Step 2:  Backup database Plus archivelog


C:\Users\mazar>set oracle_sid=azardb 

C:\Users\mazar>rman target sys/Admin123 

Recovery Manager: Release 11.2.0.1.0 - Production on Sat Jan 1 15:39:34 2011 

Copyright (c) 1982, 2009, Oracle and/or its affiliates.  All rights reserved. 

connected to target database: AZARDB (DBID=1652383192) 

RMAN> backup database plus archivelog;

Starting backup at 01-JAN-11

current log archived

using target database control file instead of recovery catalog

allocated channel: ORA_DISK_1

channel ORA_DISK_1: SID=30 device type=DISK

Step 3: Note Current SCN


SQL> conn / as sysdba

Connected.

SQL> select current_scn from v$database; 

CURRENT_SCN

-----------

    8448197

Step 4: Drop tablespace


SQL> drop tablespace testtbs including contents and datafiles; 

Tablespace dropped.

Step 5: I just added data for another table allocated for other tablespace due to  just check for data consistent.


SQL> conn testdb/testdb;

Connected.

SQL> insert into d values('azmi'); 

1 row created. 

SQL> commit; 

Commit complete.

Step 6: Create auxiliary & Recover tablespace using tablespace point in time recovery.

C:\Windows\system32>rman target sys/Admin123 

Recovery Manager: Release 11.2.0.1.0 - Production on Sat Jan 1 14:45:08 2011

Step 7: Check tablespace status


SQL> select status,tablespace_name from dba_tablespaces where tablespace_name like 'TESTTBS%'; 

STATUS    TABLESPACE_NAME

--------- ------------------------------

OFFLINE   TESTTBS 

11 rows selected. 

Alter tablespace online

SQL> alter tablespace testtbs online; 

Tablespace altered.

Step 8: Check table

SQL> conn testtbs/testtbs;

Connected.

SQL> select * from tab; 

TNAME                          TABTYPE  CLUSTERID

------------------------------ ------- ----------

TEST                           TABLE 

SQL> select * from test; 

EMPNAME              CITY

-------------------- --------------------

azar                 riyadh

jabar                chennai

SQL> 

And also I'm go to check other table for data consistent. 

SQL> conn testdb/testdb;

Connected.

SQL> select * from d; 

EMPNAME

--------------------

azmi

kareem

syed

Now successfully recovered dropped tablespace using RMAN point in time recovery.

  1. good topic but this feature is also available in 10g

    I followed your directions in 11.2.0.2.
    1) took rman full and archive backups.
    2) dropped the tablespace
    3) took more backups
    4) tried to restore the tablespace based on scn from select * from RC_CHECKPOINT where CKP_TIME is before the drop tablespace.
    5) The script was: recover tablespace MYTBS until scn 1392482 auxiliary destination ‘+FRADG';

    Everything looked good until the end:
    RMAN-00571: ===========================================================
    RMAN-00569: =============== ERROR MESSAGE STACK FOLLOWS ===============
    RMAN-00571: ===========================================================

    RMAN-11003: failure during parse/execution of SQL statement: alter tablespace EEHRENH online
    ORA-00959: tablespace ‘MYTBS’ does not exist

    Do you have any thoughts on this?

    Thanks

    • Not sure what you’re done, Can you send full detail about what you did? becuase It shows Tablespace doesn’t exist in your backup set file.

      Are you tried from recent backupset?

      February 16, 2011

    what is auxiliary destination ‘D:\backupnew';

    5> }

    can you tell me immediately on my mail raviranchi02@yahoo.co.in what is d:\backupnew
