Rman Q !!
Is there a command to unregister a db from the catalog -
EXECUTE dbms_rcvcat.unregisterdatabase(db_key, db_id)
i.e why did'nt Oracle think of
UNREGISTER DATABASE ?
or is it in 10g?
Also any links to doc. on dbms_rcvman & dbms_rcvcat,dbms_backup_restore ??
:confused: :cool: :confused:
Dunno about 10g.
My 1 cent.
A database possibly has multiple incarnations. If they had a "unregister database" a novice dba might blow away all the incarnations. Just 'theorizing'..
In anycase, what's so difficult/complicated about "EXECUTE dbms_rcvcat.unregisterdatabase(db_key, db_id)". It is an equivally simple command in my opinion.
As for links - It is all documented in the RMAN user guide.
From 10g doc
Unregistering a Database: Example
In this example, you connect to the target database test1 and then unregister it:
rman TARGET SYS/oracle@test1 CATALOG rman/rman@catdb
RMAN> UNREGISTER DATABASE NOPROMPT;
Tx pando - confirmed my suspicions - Oracle is still upto it's old tricks of creating/jumping on a buzz & selling ->
v.7-8 -> "Best" relational d/b
v.8i -> Internet d/b..
v.9i -> Prime time for web d/b,RAC,HA/MA...blah blah
v.10g -> Grid..more blah blah
Why not have unregister db in 9i - probably product dev. was too rushed to deliver/release mgmt. guys screwed up..and the 10g guys put it in?
:D :D :D
