RMAN-20202 & RMAN-06019 Errors During RMAN Tablespace Restore

These errors are occured when we try to restore a dropped tablespace. If we drop a tablespace then the controlfile will not keep any records related to the dropped tablespace. If we try to use the RMAN RESTORE or RECOVER TABLESPACE command, it will get the RMAN-20202, RMAN-06019 errors.

Let’s do a test

# sqlplus / as sysdba

SQL> create tablespace TS_TEST datafile ‘/data/test11g/ts_test.dbf’ size 10M autoextend on;

# rman target /

RMAN> backup tablespace TS_TEST;

# sqlplus / as sysdba

SQL> drop tablespace TS_TEST including contents and datafiles;

# rman target /

RMAN> restore tablespace TS_TEST;

To recover a dropped tablespace, we must do a point in time recovery of the whole database until the time the tablespace was dropped.
A tablespace backup is good if you have a media error related to tablespace.

Now let’s do another test

# sqlplus / as sysdba

SQL> create tablespace TS_TEST datafile ‘/data/test11g/ts_test.dbf’ size 10M autoextend on;

# rman target /

RMAN> backup tablespace TS_TEST;

Starting backup at 23-AUG-12

Remove datafile belong to TS_TEST tablespace in operating system

# rm /data/test11g/ts_test.dbf

Now, let’s try to create a table in TS_TEST tablespace

SQL> create table talip_test (id number) tablespace TS_TEST;
create table talip_test (id number) tablespace TS_TEST
*
ERROR at line 1:
ORA-01116: error in opening database file 31
ORA-01110: data file 31: ‘/data/test10g/ts_test.dbf’
ORA-27041: unable to open file
Linux Error: 2: No such file or directory
Additional information: 3

There is a media error and we must restore tablespace backup.

# rman target /

RMAN> sql “alter database datafile 31 offline”;

sql statement: alter database datafile 31 offline

RMAN> restore tablespace TS_TEST;

Starting restore at 23-AUG-12
using channel ORA_DISK_1

channel ORA_DISK_1: starting datafile backupset restore

RMAN> recover tablespace TS_TEST;

Starting recover at 23-AUG-12
using channel ORA_DISK_1

starting media recovery

Finished recover at 23-AUG-12

RMAN> sql “alter database datafile 31 online”;

sql statement: alter database datafile 31 online

Yes! now you can create a table in this tablespace.

# sqlplus / as sysdba

SQL> create table talip_test (id number) tablespace TS_TEST;

Table created.
