Numerous issues, such as media failures, user errors, and application errors, can cause an Oracle 12c database to become partially or fully inoperable. Because of this, data protection is the main purpose of a backup and recovery strategy. Oracle Database 12c offers RMAN data repair techniques that can be incorporated into backup and recovery strategies to respond to data loss. One of these is the Data Recovery Advisor, which can diagnose, advise, and repair some failures automatically. RMAN also offers block media recovery, point-in-time recovery as well as complete and incomplete recovery. This course will discuss how Data Recovery Advisor is used, how block corruption is handled, and the concepts regarding how various restores and recoveries are performed. This course is one of a series in the Skillsoft learning path that helps prepare the learner for the Backup and Recovery portion of the Oracle exam 1Z0-063, Oracle Database 12c: Advanced Administration.
