How to Recreate an Unrecoverable Database Deployment From a Backup to Cloud Storage (Doc ID 2188007.1)

Last updated on SEPTEMBER 29, 2016

Applies to:

Oracle Database as a Service - Version N/A to N/A [Release 1.0]
Linux x86-64

Goal

This article will give you step by step guidance to use the mrec media recovery utility to recreate the deployment (Database as a Service that hosts a single-instance database)
if it cannot be restored and recovered using the orec command or RMAN.

This situation could occur if you've deleted critical configuration files or data files (such as the database redo log files, for example), or if something else has happened that
caused the deployment to be lost.

The mrec utility restores the database deployment to the point of the last backup. This is equivalent to restoring the database and configuration from an external tape device.
The mrec utility should be considered a last resource and used only when a database deployment cannot be restored in any other way.
