Hello All,

We had an massive schema Import in our prod DB, which cause many archive log generation, but had low disk space.
So kept some archive logs aside.

When a new member generated RMAN backup, he found that, archive log missing, he didnt know the history.
So he did CROSSCHEK, which means the control file has ignored those archive log files, so the rman backup was successful.

But, now we are trying to copy those archive log back in to the default location and trying to make rman backup, we get these errors, how to tell the control file, that these archive log files should be added back again.

Starting backup at 20-JUN-19
specification does not match any archived log in the repository
backup cancelled because there are no files to backup
Finished backup at 20-JUN-19


allocated channel: ORA_DISK_1
channel ORA_DISK_1: SID=1050 device type=DISK
specification does not match any archived log in the repository


Regards
krish

You need to catalog the archive logfiles, for example,

CATALOG START WITH '/u01';

Hi John,

Thanks for the reply.

Is it ok, if the series is mismatched?
I mean, the missing back up archive log sequence is two days before, can we make RMAN backup on these?

Thanks
