    backup testing - restoring Vs Validating




      While we took backup in tape , it is not always possible to test the backup. At the same ,restoring the backup to a new host might not reflect in real production server, But oracle provide a very good way to test the backup.

      restore controlfile validate;

      restore validate database;


      My db version is and Do you think , we can depend on restore validate command, if this is successful , thn we would be able to restore the backup in real scenario???
