In an testing environment I tried to backup and restore an oracle 12c databse with VSS. It works like a charm, but everytime I recover the whole machine, the database is running, but all schemas are in backup mode and I have to put them back to online mode.
My question is now - Is this behaviour "normal" and do I get a consistence backup of all data at time of the snapshot? - If not, are there any further steps I have to take after recovery?
Thanks in advance!

for what I know this is expected behaviour. conistency is guaranteed by VSS that puts the databasefiles in hot backup mode and stop writing to online redo logs. During restore, you are epxected to bring the database back in original position and afterwards execute e reset logs operations. If you also backup archive logs and then have them available, yo can do point in time restore, otherwise oracle will just replay the redo logs to the last point stored in them.

It is possible without shutting the application down. What version of Oracle Database are you using?
