This illustration describes performing media recovery using RMAN. A database administrator issues two commands: RESTORE DATABASE and RECOVER DATABASE. RMAN is shown obtaining metadata from a recovery catalog. RMAN determines that it needs to perform the following tasks: restore backup set 1, 2; recover with incremental backup set 5; apply archived logs 3012 through 3045. RMAN sends these instructions to a server session started on the target database.
