12.1.0.2 ->11.2.0.2 via rman restore



We've attempted an upgrade this week of one of out 11.2.0.2 systems to 12.1.0.2, this ended badly with some weird problem with acl's and timestamp with timezone datatypes messing it up.


ERROR = [ORA-01830: date format picture ends before converting entire input string ORA-06512: at "SYS.XS_OBJECT_MIGRATION", line 167


This seemed to be a known problem and we followed the doc below

Oracle Support Document 1958876.1 (Upgrade to 12.1 fails with ORA-01830 date format picture ends before converting entire input string ORA-06512: at "SYS.XS_OBJECT_MIGRATION") can be found at: https://support.oracle.com/epmos/faces/DocumentDisplay?id=1958876.1

This removed all the timezones but the issue still persisted and we couldn't find a way forward - the acl removal procedure would not even work - so we were forced to abandon the upgrade.

With all the issues we were having we decided running any kind of downgrade script was not a good idea - instead we'd just restore from rman backup.

The code below shows how to restore from rman backup when you want to restore everything - including the controlfiles.

First up we shutdown abort the instance at 12c to make sure there is no SGA left at all - we don;t care about the status of any of the files as we will trash the lot.

Then we update the oratab back to 11.2 and switch the environment back to 11.2

Now we startup nomount to get an instance again (note just the instance - we don't mount anything)

Note here that it doesn't know which dbid we are interested in as there are multiple with the same name so we have to tell it. We find the dbid from the backup logs of the earlier backups.

We then run the following script to do the restore and recover


RUN
{
set dbid 3219893268;
  SET UNTIL TIME '19-FEB-2015 16:15:32';
  allocate channel t1 type 'sbt_tape' parms 'ENV=(TDPO_OPTFILE=/tsm/DB_NAME/conf/tdpo.opt)';     
  RESTORE CONTROLFILE; 
  ALTER DATABASE MOUNT; 
  RESTORE DATABASE;
  RECOVER DATABASE;
}

Note the following

1) dbid has to be explicitly set
2) set until time has to be explicitly set to just before we tried the upgrade
3) We have to allocate a tape channel as our backups are on tape
4) we need an explicit mount after the controlfiles are restore

So lets run it - I've included all the output just so you can see everything it did.

RMAN> RUN
2> {
3> set dbid 3219893268;
4>   SET UNTIL TIME '19-FEB-2015 16:15:32';
5>   allocate channel t1 type 'sbt_tape' parms 'ENV=(TDPO_OPTFILE=/tsm/DB_NAME/conf/tdpo.opt)';
6>   RESTORE CONTROLFILE;
  ALTER DATABASE MOUNT; 7>
8>   RESTORE DATABASE;
9>   RECOVER DATABASE;
10> }
