    EBS R12.2 inventory_bak.xml

      Hi all,

       

      EBS R12.2.4

      RHEL 6.6

       

      I checked our oraInventory folder,  and I saw lots of  backup of inventory.xml.

      under /u01/oraInventory/  are:

      -rw-rw----. 1 appvis dba 2597 Mar 21 01:52 ./backup/2015-03-21_01-59-17AM/ContentsXML/inventory_bak.xml

      -rw-rw----. 1 appvis dba 2597 Mar 21 01:52 ./backup/2015-03-21_03-24-11AM/ContentsXML/inventory_bak.xml

      -rw-rw----. 1 appvis dba 2597 Mar 21 01:52 ./backup/2015-03-21_01-58-20AM/ContentsXML/inventory_bak.xml

      -rw-rw----. 1 appvis dba 2597 Mar 21 01:52 ./backup/2015-03-21_03-25-08AM/ContentsXML/inventory_bak.xml

      -rw-rw----. 1 appvis dba 3205 Mar 26 06:39 ./backup/2015-03-26_06-47-31AM/ContentsXML/inventory_bak.xml

      -rw-rw----. 1 appvis dba 3205 Mar 26 06:39 ./backup/2015-03-26_06-49-04AM/ContentsXML/inventory_bak.xml

      -rw-rw----. 1 appvis dba 2597 Mar 21 01:52 ./backup/2015-03-21_01-57-42AM/ContentsXML/inventory_bak.xml

      -rw-rw----. 1 appvis dba 3205 Mar 26 06:39 ./backup/2015-03-26_06-48-08AM/ContentsXML/inventory_bak.xml

      -rw-rw----. 1 appvis dba 2597 Mar 21 01:52 ./backup/2015-03-21_03-23-33AM/ContentsXML/inventory_bak.xml

      -rw-r-----. 1 root dba 3205 Mar 26 06:39 ./ContentsXML/inventory_bak.xml

       

      Can you tell me what process generated this backup? And when do I can use them for restoration?

      Actually when I do post-cloning I remove first entries in the invtory, hence I created my own backup too, which is the last line on the above list.

      I did not know that there lots of backup copies. And I do not know which is the best of them all?



      Thanks a lot,
