Thinking Out Loud

So there I was, working on a request for how to restore from a specific backup.

Since the backup was using TAG, the easy solution is:

start database nomount.
restore controlfile from autobackup
startup mount database
restore database from tag ‘TAG’;
recover database / recover database until sequence
open database resetlogs

Demo: RMAN_Restore_From_TAG_Part1

The issue with the demo is that it’s too simplistic.

What happens when a new tablespace or backup is created after the TAG backup and will restore controlfile from autobackup work?

Demo: RMAN_Restore_From_TAG_Part2
