I'm testing using rman to restore an 8i database to a different server.
I connected to the sid on the new server and the rman catalog, and started with this command:
allocate channel ch01 type 'sbt_tape';
restore control file;
alter database mount;
It seems to be hung, it's been running for 90 minutes. How can I tell if it's doing anything? Is it ok to just stop this? How long should this step take?
Thanks very much for any help.
