Backup restoration


I have my Production Database <b>Oracle 8i</b>,SAP 4.6C Windows Server 2003.

Also one Test m/c on <b>Oracle 9i</b>,SAP 4.6C Windows Server 2003.

I do have Production offline backup taken by DB13.So is it possible to restore the Production backup in Test m/c ignoring this Oracle version mismatch?

Please reply asap its urgent.

    Hi Mofizur

    As far as my lnowledge goes, restoration of adata onto a lower version from a higher version of Oracle is possible althought the vice versa is not possible.

    One simple way is to go to transfer the offline backup file and the back<SID>.log file and run the restore and recovery through SAPDBA utility. It will tell you of the status.

    Hope it helps.

    • ok,

      you have already lost over 10 hours trying to use your ORacle 9 DB on Oracle 8 binaries.. this is enough.

      an upgrade to Oracle 9.2.0 binaries should take you less than 1 hour.

      you install 9.2.0, install patch for then, you should be able to open you DB correctly. no need to upgrade the DB contents as it was already done.
