Lesson 7

NOARCHIVELOG Recovery Conclusion in Oracle

In this module you learned about the concept of recovery and the required data structures to restore a NOARCHIVELOG database. The implications of recovery without archiving were explained as well as the steps to recover a database without archiving when a media failure occurs.
Having completed this module, you should be able to:
Identify data structures required for restore
  1. Identify data structures required for recovery
  2. Describe the implications of recovering a NOARCHIVELOG database
  3. Recover a database in NOARCHIVELOG mode
  4. Restore files to a different location if media failure occurs


This module introduced you to the following terms:
  1. Restore: To restore means to bring back an original copy of a file from backup by issuing the operating system COPY command.
    Before recovery is performed, you need to restore the database.
  2. Recover: To recover means to make all the restored files current to the same point in time.
  3. Rolling forward: The process of recovering datafiles and control files by applying the redo logs is also known as rolling forward.
  4. Log Writer (LGWR): Log Writer writes Redo Entries into the online redo logs. After a log fills, a log switch occurs. A minimum of two online redo logs is required by LGWR. Each log switch causes a new log sequence number to be used and assigned to the current log file.

In the next module, you will learn how to recover a database running in ARCHIVELOG mode. Before you go on to the next module, use the following Quiz and Exercise to check your understanding of the concepts presented in this module.
