Once a backup has been taken the second part of the process is to perform the restore or recover operation. This is an operation no one wants to have to undertake, but you must be prepared to do so if it is required. This chapter deals with the recovery tasks from the recovery manager point of view.
All the scenarios assume that you have a database in archivelog mode and a valid backup which was taken using recovery manager. The database used to perform the demonstrations is a regular general purpose database created with the DBCA. The scenarios are performed with the SYSDBA role because this role can manage the Oracle instance and it can perform incomplete recovery operations.
