We have been doing tablespace backups because any other backup was filling the DLT tape we where using....
I was tring to create a test database from our production backup.....
RESTORE database FLPRDFLA TABLESPACE(DATA01) from /db_backup/DATA01 into FLPRDRST buffer 256 WITHOUT ROLLING FORWARD without prompting
SQL2560N The target database is not identical to the source database for a
restore from a table space level backup.
no way to create a db from ts backup. even if restoring in same database you can not if ts has been dropped..

Good DBAs are not formed in a week or a month. They are created little by little, day by day. Protracted and patient effort is needed to develop good DBAs.
