Customer has two instances in same server one "real" for production and one for development. Development instance data is synchronized from real data by restoring production instance ontape Level 0. As both are in the same server, a chunk mapping feature is used to restore from "production" chunks to "development" chunk names.
If the mapping is not well done, we can overwrite production chunks trying to restore development instance and this can be a critical issue.
Having feedback in ontape restore process of mapped chunk names is critical before starting restore to ensure all chunks are mapped and every think will work as expected.
|Who would benefit from this IDEA?||As a customer with multiple instance servers this is a critical feature.|
How should it work?
whe using ontape restore with mapping chunks:
$ ontape -r -rename -f ontape_chunks.txt -t BACKUPS/pdbreal_0_L0
when linsting the chunks to restore, currently we get the names of original chunks stored in the tape (BACKUPS/pdbreal_0_L0 )
The mapping file has this content:
we propose to show the mapped names so we can check every chunk is properly mapped before starting restore:
