This simulation gives you a chance to practice the steps of recovering a lost control file. When you are finished, click the Submit
button to receive credit for completing the exercise.
Since your backup control file is made through the
ALTER DATABASE BACKUP
CONTROLFILE TO <file_name>;
command, you have to:
- Restore this control file
- Mount the database
- Issue the
ALTER DATABASE BACKUP CONTROLFILE TO TRACE; command
- Recreate the control file
Unlike most simulations within this course, there are a few steps you'll need to figure out on your own.
We will tell you what to do, but figuring out how to do it will be your task in this exercise.
