OS and Oracle Software Installations on Mirrored Disk (ext3)
DATA Diskgroup on RAID10 (ASM)
FRA Diskgroup on RAID10 (ASM)
GRID Diskgroup on Mirrored Disk (ASM) -- OCR/Voting Disks/ASMParameterfile
SCENARIO: OS upgrade fails and we need to recovery to backup. Have OS/Oracle Software partition file-based backup. We have RMAN database backup.
* SysAdmin says he can only perform file-based backup of OS/Oracle Software partition. Is a file-based backup sufficent or is a image (bare-metal) backup required?
* ASMLib packages will be upgraded. Will this affect ASM Disk or data on ASM disks?
* What additional steps should be performed to ensure successful restoration?
* Any recommended steps that may not be required?
