On the Create Selection Set page, with the Whole Database node and the other nodes based on the items selected for the backup displayed, select the applicable items:
Whole Database: Select this node if you want to Restore or Recover, or both, the entire database. With this option selected, you can perform the DBPITR based on SCN, LSN, or time to reconstruct the database up to the required point.
Selecting the All Tablespaces node or all the datafiles and tablespaces nodes is not equivalent to selecting this node.
Parameter File: Available only if the Control File Autobackup Enabled option is cleared on the Add, or Edit, Oracle Database dialog box.
SPFILE: For restore purposes, a node SPFILE is available in the restore selections if the backup contents include the backup of the SPFILE. If selected, it restores the SPFILE using RMAN commands — in particular the RESTORE SPFILE command.
NOTE: An SPFILE cannot be restored to overwrite a live SPFILE, for example, if the database was started using the SPFILE. However, it can be restored to a different location. Use the Restore Rename feature of NetVault Backup and input the full path  — full directory path and filename — of the location to which to restore the SPFILE.
Control File: You cannot open this node further. Also, if a Recovery Catalog is not in use, you cannot restore it from the WebUI. The restore fails if you try to include Control File in a restore job, unless Use Catalog is enabled on the Recovery Catalog tab.
All Tablespaces: Select this node to perform an All Tablespace restore where all the tablespaces are restored consecutively with the RMAN RESTORE DATAFILE command. Performing an All Tablespace restore requires the database to be in a MOUNT state.
Individual Tablespaces/Datafiles: Open the All Tablespaces node to reveal the tablespaces available for restoration. You can select individual or multiple tablespaces, or open the tablespace node and select individual datafiles. Restoring individual tablespaces or datafiles requires the tablespace to be OFFLINE during the restore and recovery process.
External Configuration Files: You can expand this node to reveal the Oracle Network Configuration and Oracle Password files available for restore. Select this node to restore all the available External Configuration Files, or open it and select individual files. The plug-in uses the Plug-in for FileSystem functionality to restore the Oracle Network Configuration and Oracle Password files.
