How to verify RMAN backup files?
Posted on 2014-07-17
One of our Oracle servers has crashed. The server was Windows 2008 R2 std edition with Oracle 11gR2. We installed Windows 2008R2 and Oracle 11gR2 on another server with the same instance name; however Oracle Home is not in the same drive compared to previous one and there is no tablespace other than System yet.
I have RMAN backup files in an external disk. However, I'm suspicious of RMAN backup files' consistency, whether they are restorable or not. How can I check the consistency of these files? Please note that the original server has been lost. I want to introduce these files to new Oracle Server's RMAN and verify whether they are OK.
