    Title:
    What are the DBaaS OSS backup pieces
    Content:

    I forced a full backup up my DBaaS instance to an OSS container using the /var/opt/oracle/bkup_api utility.  We are having an issue restoring these files (using dbaasapi or bkup_api) to a different box from where they originated because for whatever reason it's not bringing down the archive logs.  Using the OSS FTM CLI utility I downloaded all the files that were added to the oss container during the backup, but I have no idea what these files actually are.  I was hoping to be able to find the datafiles, archivelog / redolog, etc but don't see anything like that in there.  Is there anyway to use these files outside of the utilities ?
