Backup Recovery   «Prev 

Creating scripts with RMAN

To use RMAN, you must first connect to it. This connection is necessary to:
  1. Authenticate you as a valid user
  2. Identify your target database, which is the database that you are backing up or restoring
  3. Identify the database containing the recovery catalog (if you use a recovery catalog)

Using backup scripts can do the following:
  1. Back up Control files
  2. Back up Archive log files
  3. Back up Tablespaces
  4. Back up data files
  5. Specify where to save the backup, disk or tape
  6. Specify more than one channel, to parallelize the process, so the backup can be done more quickly
