How to restore a backup file that was generated manually from KB 136010





SCP the dumpfile.dmp file into the /tmp directory of the new services virtual machine (VM)

As the ops user, run the following command on the services VM.  This will be the location that you need to place the .dmp file.

$ docker volume inspect $(docker volume ls --format='{{.Name}}' | grep oracle-backup) --format='{{.Mountpoint}}' 



Run the command below to move the dump file from the /tmp directory into the oracle-backup mount point.  Due to file permissions the file cannot be directly copied to the location below from a remote location.

$ sudo mv /tmp/dumpfile.dmp /var/lib/docker/volumes/repl10aeecc4_oracle-backup/_data

Once the dumpfile.dmp has been moved into place, run the following command to restore the dumpfile into the new Oracle VM

$ caac oracle_restore
