Our SAP Production environment is a clustered environment:
PROD R/3 CLUSTER
BSRPR3100 - Windows Cluster
BSRPR3101 - Node IP
BSRPR3102 - Node IP (oracle is installed here)
BSRPR3200 - Oracle Cluster
BSRPR3300 - SAP Cluster
When you shutdown (place offline) and restart (place online) the database in a clustered environment you have to use ORACLE FAIL SAFE MANAGER.
When I ran the restore I ran it from BSRPR3102. The brrestore -d util_file -b last -m full -c force completed successfully.
I received this oracle error:
ORA-01589 must use RESETLOGS or NORESETLOGS option for database open
Cause: Either incomplete or backup control file recovery has been performed. After these types of recovery you must specify either the RESETLOGS option or the NORESETLOGS option to open your database.
Action: Specify the appropriate option.
When you restore the control files and one or more database files or in my case restore the entire database I would need to open the database with resetlogs, which puts the database back to how it existed as of the restore:
My question is: If the database is already shutdown and the only way to open the database is to use ORACLE FAIL SAFE MANAGER were do you enter
ALTER DATABASE OPEN RESETLOGS;
I tried logging on with sqlplus but it would not allow me
Thanks for your help
