Possibly, but It Depends.
What's in the backup file, is it just the instance backup? Or was rman configured to backup the spfile?
See the documentation on restoring an instance, and note the prerequisites, have to a) have an operational host target to restore to, and b) XE binaries installed and operational on that target host.
Hi and thanks for the reply,
The previous backup was done using the "database backup", so I assume that it has been a complete backup (instance).
But I am still not able to recover the database.
The main issue is that I have uninstalled the database and all I have in my hand is the ?????_.BKP file.
I really appreciate any help.
