During complete or incomplete media recovery, Oracle applies redo log files to the
datafiles during the roll forward phase of media recovery. Because changes to undo
segments are recorded in the online redo log, rolling forward regenerates the
corresponding undo segments. Rolling forward proceeds through as many redo log files
as necessary to bring the database forward in time.
Oracle Corporation recommends that you use the SQL*PlusRECOVER command rather than the ALTER DATABASE RECOVER statement to perform media recovery. In almost all cases, the SQL*Plus method is easier.
When using SQL*Plus to perform media recovery, the easiest strategy is to perform
automatic recovery. Automatic recovery initiates recovery without manually prompting
SQL*Plus to apply each individual archived log.
The filenames used when you use automatic recovery are derived from the concatenated values ofLOG_ARCHIVE_FORMAT withLOG_ARCHIVE_DEST_n, wheren is the highest value among all enabled, local destinations.
LOG_ARCHIVE_DEST_1 = "LOCATION=/arc_dest/loc1/"
LOG_ARCHIVE_DEST_2 = "LOCATION=/arc_dest/loc2/"
LOG_ARCHIVE_DEST_STATE_1 = DEFER
LOG_ARCHIVE_DEST_STATE_2 = ENABLE
LOG_ARCHIVE_FORMAT = arch_%t_%s.arc
