    oracle backup / recovery using Oracle VSS writer

    Hello All,

    I am going through the Oracle VSS writer , trying out various methods. Just keen to know if this is the right place to ask VSS related questions as I could not find any post related to VSS.

    Question:

    For Volume based VSS shadow copy backups for a logged database, I am unsure about the restore method using VSS writer. Also oracle doc does not mention any steps for volume based restore of a logged (archive log mode db) database.

    Can someone kindly give me some pointers to it?

    Thanks in advance!

    Thanks & Regards,

    Hello ,

    Thanks for your reply.

    I have already gone through the Database Platform Guide for Windows and the link you mentioned, But, I am afraid that I could not find the required information in that doc.
    There is component based restore steps mentioned for Archived logged database but restore of a volume based backup is not mentioned.

    However, both, volume based and component based restore methods are mentioned for NOARCHIVELOG database.


    Thanks in advance!

    Thanks & Regards,
