4.6 Overview of Reporting on Backups and the RMAN Repository

You can obtain information from the RMAN repository in several different ways:


If backups have been manipulated outside of the control of RMAN (for example, if some disk-based backups have been deleted, or tape backups are temporarily unavailable or permanently lost) then see Chapter 8, "Recovery Manager Maintenance Tasks" for details on how to update the RMAN repository record of backups to reflect the actual set of available backups, using commands such as CHANGE, CROSSCHECK, and DELETE. Otherwise, the output of the commands and views listed here may be misleading, and RMAN may not be able to find the backups to restore and recover your database until you update the repository.
