Recently I have noticed that re-imaging process on the second Oracle Database Appliance node took significantly shorter time comparing with the first node.

However, upon recovery, the necessary archive logs to bring the database to a consistent point, were not available. With a 28 day retention policy, running level 0 backups every 15 days, and level 1s each night, we did have the necessary level 0 backup, but the archive logs had been deleted.
