Restore of Redologs from backup volume using BRTools 7.40 patch 29

Hi All,

I am trying to restore some redologs from the backups to correct a gap on the standby database using BRTools. But no matter which option I choose it complains

BR0342I Database instance PRD is started and open 
BR0068E SAP system is running or SAP user is connected to database instance PRD
BR1025I Please shut down SAP system first or use the '-c force' option

Is this correct? Do I really need to use the -c option?

If I call brrestore directly such as :-

brrestore -a 7682-7698 -p initPRD_ArchDisk.sap

It doesn't complain.

Am I missing something here?

Thanks

Craig

    Hi Craig,

    What is the status of the database? Because the online database cannot be recovered.

    Best regards,
    James

    Are you using the right .sap/.utl file for the restore of archive logs? Technically there is no need to shutdown the database to restore the archive logs. I have restore the archive logs and the command I used was

    brrestore -u / -p /oracle/SID/112_64/dbs/initSID_redologs.sap -d util_file -a 198630-198640

    • Hi Reagan,

      Yes I used brrestore in the end, but I wanted to know how we get to that from within BRTools. Every option I chose resulted in it asking me to use the -c option.

      Thanks
