RMAN SCENARIO – LOSS OF ALL CONTROLFILES (NO CATALOG)


SQL> insert into myobjects select * from myobjects;
919664 rows created.


SQL> commit;
Commit complete.


SQL> select count(*) from myobjects;
 COUNT(*)
----------
   1839328   >>>> need to check this record count after recovery


SQL> archive log list
Database log mode              Archive Mode
Automatic archival             Enabled
Archive destination            USE_DB_RECOVERY_FILE_DEST
Oldest online log sequence     5
Next log sequence to archive   7
Current log sequence           7

Note - current log sequence is 7 - not archived but contains the last committed changes that we made
Note - archive logs will not be found in $ARCV area, but in the flashback location

Simulate a failure

Since we are not using a RMAN catalog we need to set the DBID


RMAN> set dbid=2415549446;
executing command: SET DBID
