    RMAN BACKUP - Validate

    DBA112
      Dear Experts,

      DB Version - 11.1.0.7

      I have a RMAN BACKUP taken to disk with tag 'TAG NAME'. Is there a way to validate the backup by using its tag name to verify if it will be useful for a successful restore and recovery to a different envt ? Appreciate your thougts

      Thanks

          You could try
          RESTORE DATABASE FROM TAG 'tagname' VALIDATE ;
          RESTORE ARCHIVELOG ALL FROM TAG 'tagname' VALIDATE;
          There is also a VALIDATE command but it's syntax requires you to specify the BACKUPSET and not the TAG
          VALIDATE BACKUPSET 'key' ;
