brrestore to different location

hello community,

I have a SAP ERP running with AIX and Oracle 9. Normally I make backup using transaction db13, and when I need to restore I use brrestore tool like this: brrestore -b<archive.ant> -m full, so this command restore all database files to the original location


Now I need to restore all files to another location, example: /oracle/PRD_1/....,

How can I do this? is there any variable in a file, where I can set the new restore directory??

Thanks friends !!

Hi Javier,

From my experience, brrestore is quite intelligent to know the the filesystem to restore to.

brrestore –c –b <backup log file> -p init<SID>.sap -m full

Just make sure you have the enviroment variables set before running the restore


brrestore will prompt you, if you have changed location of the filesystem (SID changed).

Hope this helps.
