Hi Scott,

You need to put the word "test" in double quotes. Here is a version that will work:

run {

allocate channel notarget1 device type 'sbt_tape'

 PARMS 'SBT_LIBRARY=/opt/commvault/Base/,BLKSIZE=1048576";
Recover table "TEST"."TEST_TABLE" until time  = “to_date(‘11/04/2018 00:00:00’,’mm/dd/yyyy hh24:mi:ss’)”

Auxiliary destination ‘/oracle/data/TEST’

Remap table ‘TEST’.’TEST_TABLE’:’TEST_TABLE2’;

release  channel notarget1;


BTW, for this to work, your database version must be 12.1 or higher.

Has anyone done a table restore using CommVault?  I’m trying to figure out how to do it using the command line interface, as I want to change the table name and the GUI doesn’t appear to allow that.

I’ve created a user, test, with a table, test_table to use for this.  I put 10 rows in the table the other day and 10 more today.  I want to restore a copy of the table to another table from the other day.

I’ve created a script, using the usual CommVault stuff at the beginning and ending and added the recover table clause in the middle, but RMAN doesn’t like it.

This is what I have so far:

run {

allocate channel notarget1 device type 'sbt_tape'

 PARMS 'SBT_LIBRARY=/opt/commvault/Base/,BLKSIZE=1048576


Recover table test.test_table until time  = “to_date(‘11/04/2018 00:00:00’,’mm/dd/yyyy hh24:mi:ss’)”

Auxiliary destination ‘/oracle/data/TEST’

Remap table ‘TEST’.’TEST_TABLE’:’TEST_TABLE2’;

release channel notarget1;


RMAN keeps complaining about ‘test’.  When I took that out, it complained about ‘until’.  It keeps telling me there is a syntax error and I can’t figure out why.  The recover table statement is based on the Oracle RMAN documentation.
