Restoring an Alternative Copy of an Oracle Backup
I am trying to restore an Oracle database however I don't want to restore the primary copy
I found an article and added the ALT_RESTORE_COPY_NUMBER file in /usr/openv/netbackup on the Masterserver. This file contains only the number 4 which is the copy number I am interested in
It seems however that when I run my oracle rman script (see below), it uses copy 2 not copy 4. Anyone any ideas why??
I am running Netbackup version 188.8.131.52
ALLOCATE CHANNEL Controlfile_channel TYPE 'SBT_TAPE';
Here is a section of the output which shows that copy 2 is being used......
Info bpbrm(pid=1862) accepted connection from client

Any help appreciated
