My Production system Live cache has been crashed. I am trying to restore the last backup which was taken yesterday night 8:00pm. I am able to restore the Live Cache however unable to restore the logs to recover PIT, as it is complaining about log sequence. I am not sure about finding the sequence number it is asking for.
Crash happened today morning 7:00am. Backup restored last night 8pm and trying to do point in time recovery. Backup has been restored and trying to apply logs.
Note;- log backup is for every 2 hours, so after the complete backup last night, we have log backup's for every 2 hours and trying to apply the same.
Kindly suggest what can be done..

Leave PANIC MODE right now!
Open a support message, have support check what actually is wrong with the liveCache and decide together with them how the system can be brought up again.
(Why does everybody seems to believe that recovery is the right response to any kind of issues with databases?)
You have questions how to solve the liveCache issues on the PROD system
As already recommended Lars, please open the SAP message to the component BC-DB-LVC to get SAP support.
It will be helpful to know the SCM/APO version, liveCache version and more details about the liveCache crash.
In case you had the liveCache crash due the hardware problems, and the data or log volumes or liveCache configuration files are corrupted
solve the hardware issues first or use another server
Follow the SAP note to create the liveCache instance:
457425 Homogenous liveCache copy using backup/restore
You need to create/initialize the liveCache instance for restore or run the Restore with initialization, restore the successful databackup, then leave the liveCache in admin status and continue the restore of the incremental databackup/logbackups in sequence if needed.
