Backup being written to dbs location

Hello all,
when i try to run the backup using below....for some reason my backup keeps going to $ORACLE_HOME/dbs location and the backup location that i specified...any reason why its writting back to dbs location?? .....i am on almost seems like its backing it up twice ?
allocate channel t1 type disk;
backup incremental
level=1 database FORMAT '/oracle/test/backups/%d_%t_%s_%p_%T' plus archivelog not backed up 1 times delete all in
put tag = 'DB_NAME level 1';
and here is my show all;
RMAN configuration parameters for database with db_unique_name TRGT are:
CONFIGURE CHANNEL DEVICE TYPE DISK FORMAT '/oracle/test/backups/%d_%t_%s_%p_%T';
CONFIGURE SNAPSHOT CONTROLFILE NAME TO '/u01/app/oracle/prodcut/11.2/dbs/snapcf_TRGT.f'; # default

  • How reman backup the blocks being written from memory to disk

    Hi All,
    I am thinking about one case when backuping the datafiles with RMAN.
    That is the rman is about to backup block A when this block is being written by DBWR from memory to disk.
    Let's assume the writing is just partially done. What will RMAN do in this case?
    1. Wait until the writing is done and back it up
    2. Backup what RMAN sees at that time
    I am just wondering whether the choice 2 will leave the block inconsistent and so be taken as corrupt when restored.
    Best regards,

    LeonHi Leon
    That's why if you don't take backup of archived redo log file that was generated after the full backup, the backup is considered "inconsistent". If you use "backup database plus archivelog" command, this means that after backing up the database, RMAN switches redo log files and archives it to make the whole backup "consistent"

  • File corruption on SDCard when multiple files are being written from WinCE 6.0R3

    We currently have file corruption problems which we have been able to reproduce on our system which uses WinCE 6.0R3. We have an SDCard in our system which is mounted as the root FS.  When multiple files are being written to the file system we occasionally
    see file corruption with data destined from one file, ending up in another file, or in another location in the same file.  We have already written test SW that we have been able to use to reproduce the problem, and have worked with the SDCard vendor to
    check that the memory controller on the card is not the source of the problems.
    We know that the data we send to WriteFile() is correct, and that the data which eventually gets sent through the SDCard driver to the SD card is already corrupted.
    We believe that the problem is somewhere in the microsoft private sources between the high level filesystem API calls and the low level device calls that get the data onto the HW.
    We have confirmed that the cards that get corrupted are all good and this is not a case ofpoor quality flash memory in the cards. The same cards that fail under WinCE 6.0R3 never fail under the same types of testing on Windows, Mac OX, or linux.  We
    can hammer the cards with single files writes over and over, but as soon as multiple threads are writing multiple files it is only a matter of time before a corruption occurs.
    One of the big problems is that we are using the sqlcompact DB for storing some data and this DB uses a cache which get's flushed on it's own schedule. Often the DB gets corrupted because other files are being written when the DB decides to flush.
    So we can reproduce the error (with enough time), and we know that data into the windows CE stack of code is good, but it comes out to the SDcard driver corrupted.  We have tried to minimize writes to the file system, but so far we have not found a
    way to make sure only one file can be written at once. Is there a setting or an API call that we can make to force the OS into only allowing one file write at a time, or a way of seeing how the multiple files are managed in the private sources?

    All QFE's have been applied we are building the image so we have some control.
    I have build an image which used the debug DLL's of the FATFS and I have enabled all of the DebugZones.  The problem is still happening. From the timings in the debug logs and the timestamps in the data which corrupts the test file I have been able
    to see that the file is corrupted AFTER the write is complete. Or at least that's how it seems.
    We finished writing the file and closed the handle. Then more data is written to other files. When we get around to verifying the file it now contains data from the files that were subsequently written.
    What I think I need to do is figure out in detail how the two files were "laid down" onto the SDCard.  If the system used the same cluster to write the 2 files then that would explain the issue.

  • RMAN retores archivelog to dbs location

    While i test my RMAN backup in test server, I found archive log always restore to oracle_home/dbs location .rather than actual location.
    I copy the whole rman bacnk to my test server from production to test..which is same folder structure. When i put the backup in exact location and set dbid and restore controlfile. And then restore datafile and start recover them ,And the problem start at this point .Archive log should restore to the same location that in production. But it restores to oracle_home/dbs. Where is the mistake that i have done??

    Post the output of
    log_archive_dest_1   ------ > assuming your db version > 10.1from your source DB.
    Please provide the version
    I know your question is about restore. Just want to let you know ; if you execute
    rman > backup database;without specifying backup location using FORMAT parameter, then your backup files will end up in ORACLE_HOME/dbs

  • External HDD rack unmounts when being written to

    I have a small HDD rack (4 bay, 2TB max per bay, 3.5" Sata) connected to my iMac via USB 2.0.
    I've had it nearly a year, and it worked fine always. I store my media on a 2TB WD (no partitions) drive that's in it, and documents on a 750GB WD (3 partitions) drive that's also in there.
    However, in the last couple of days, it keeps randomly unmounting itself when it's being written to, and almost instantly remounts. The thing is though, it unmounts all partitions on all disks, not just one random disk having trouble with being written to. I can't understand how the whole rack dies when being written to.
    Also, currently the only way I can replicate it is by downloading a file using something like Vuze directly onto the drive, and this makes it unmount itself within seconds of starting the download (have also tried several different files in case it was a corrupt file causing it). Copying normal files across doesn't seem to cause an issue. Finally, when it's not being written to/downloaded to or whatever, it can be on for days and never have a problem or unmount itself, whereas if I try and download something to it, it unmounts constantly.
    Please help it's getting really irritating not to mention I'm worried about the risk of corrupted data.
    Forgot to mention, disk utility says everything is in order.

  • Is there a way that to make text look like it is being written on the screen?

    I once saw a tiltle (using the font edwardian script) that looked like it was being written on the screen.
    I tried using the linear wipe transition, but this does not make the full effect i want.. for instance, when you make a letter "t" in cursive, you start at the bottom, then go up and then down and finally cross the "t". the wipe just went from left to right....

    I have done this for several Titles, using Photoshop and a Layer Mask, that gets "erased," revealing the letters. My Titles were of "handwriting with chalk" on a blackboard, so I could keep the edge of that Layer Mask, looking more like the "chalk." Photoshop also makes it easy to output Layer Comps for each "step" in the handwriting process. IIRC, I did about 5 Frames per Layer Comp on Import, but do not recall if I used an extremely short Cross-Dissolve Transition between those - I intened to do so, but just do not remember if I liked that, or went with just the Still Images? Will try to find that animation, and maybe create a full tutorial of the process. In my case, I also added an SFX of chalk on a chalkboard.
    If you have Photoshop, it's really quite easy to pull off.
    Now, I do not know if Photoshop Elements has Layer Masks yet, which make it so very easy to accomplish. One could do it backward, where the Text Layer gets Erased, and then one would have their full Image as the last in the sequence, and then the next would have a little bit of the Text removed, then a bit more, then a bit more - going backward, until the "writing surface" is clean. One could also do this with a Transparent Background, so that one saw the Video below, and no actual "writing surface" visible.
    Good luck,

  • Text types along the horizontal border of the text box instead of being written inside of it. What's wrong?

    I created a text box by dragging the horizontal text tool.
    But when I start typing, the text aligns along the upper border of the box instead of being written inside of it.
    It looks like this.
    How can I fix this, so that the text is inserted inside the defined box?
    Much thanks in advance!

    I just figured it out! Can't believe I was this clueless.
    I just had to change the font height back to 100%. Haha

  • Ocrfile is not being written to.  open file issues.  Help please.

    I've been troubleshooting an open file issue on our Test environment for quite a while now. Oracle has had me update to latest CRS bundle for, then upgrade to, then two more patches via OPatch to bring RAC to it's most recent patch. None of these patches resolved our problem. We have ~8700 datafiles in the database and once the database is started, we're at ~11k on Production but on Test we're at ~37K or higher. It takes 1-2 days to hit the 65536 limit before it crashes. I have to 'bounce' the database to keep it from crashing. Yes, I could raise the ulimit but that isn't solving the problem.
    Over the weekend I noticed that on Production and DEV, the ocrfile is being written to constantly and has a current timestamp but on Test, the ocrfile has not been written to since the last OPatch install. I've checked the crs status via 'cluvfy stage -post crsinst -n all -verbose' and everything comes back as 'passed'. The database is up and running, but the ocrfile is still timestamped at April 14th and open files jump to 37k upon opening the database and continue to grow to the ulimit. Before hitting the limit, I'll have over 5,000 open files for 'hc_<instance>.dat, which is where I've been led down the path of patching Oracle CRS and RDBMS to resolve the 'hc_<instance>.dat bug which was supposed to be resolved in all of the patches I've applied.
    From imon_<instance>.log:
    Health check failed to connect to instance.
    GIM-00090: OS-dependent operation:mmap failed with status: 22
    GIM-00091: OS failure message: Invalid argument
    GIM-00092: OS failure occurred at: sskgmsmr_13
    That info started the patching process but it seems like there's more to it and this is just a result of some other issue. The fact that my ocrfile on Test is not being written to when it updates frequently on Prod and Dev, seems odd.
    We're using OCFS2 as our CFS, updated to most recent version for our kernel (RHEL AS 4 u7 -- 2.6.9-67.0.15.ELsmp for x86_64)
    Any help greatly appreciated.

  • What line(s) of javascript is used to disable/enable html from being written for .mucows

    The question kinda says it all but some widget developers use javascript to disable html from being written. I'm wondering how it's done

    You can have different <pageItemHTML> sections based on the value of an option. You could have one that's empty and one that's not.
    Download all the samples from the documentation page:
    MuCow Documentation
    There's a sample named 'Fox.mucow' which uses different HTML based on the value of an option.

  • File adapter reading while the file is still being written....

    Hello BPEL Gurus,
    I had a quick question around BPEL or ESB file adapter. Does BPEL file adapter starts reading a huge file that is being written or it waits until the writing process is completed and file is complete?
    Any response is highly is appreciated.

    It goes like this. At every polling frequency, the adapter looks into the directory for the files with specified pattern (e.g. *.csv, MYCOMPANY*.txt) and specified condition, e.g. minimum file age. This means if there will be 2 files available with matching criteria, the both will be picked up and processed simultaneously in two different BPEL instances. No specific order of execution. However you will find the instances in BPEL console with little delay based on file size.
    Perhaps you can elaborate your scenario further. Do we have knowledge of the file name that are to be picked up from the folder. You may use synchronous read option. If you are using version then you can specify the file name before file adapter makes a synchronous read into the give directory.

  • Hprof heap dump not being written to specified file

    I am running with the following
    -Xrunhprof:heap=all,format=b,file=/tmp/englog.txt (java 1.2.2_10)
    When I start the appserver, the file /tmp/englog1.txt gets created, but
    when I do a kill -3 pid on the .kjs process, nothing else is being written to
    /tmp/englog1.txt. In the kjs log I do see the "Dumping java heap..." message
    and a core file is generated.
    Any ideas on why I'm not getting anything else written to /tmp/englog1.txt?

    It seems that the option you are using is correct. I may modify it to something like
    java -Xrunhprof:heap=all,format=a,cpu=samples,file=/tmp/englog.txt,doe=n ClassFile
    This seems to work on 1.3.1_02, so may be something specific to the JDK version that
    you are using. Try a later version just to make sure.

  • IO Labels are NOT being written to prefs!

    I've followed all the advice on existing threads about this and it's definitely a serious bug for me. IO Labels are not being written to prefs for me.
    Any ideas? Already tried deleting prefs, creating new blank project and not saving, nothing has worked.

    I found a workaround for anyone having this issue - and this is the ONLY thing that has worked after a week of trying everything on several forums.
    Open Logic, set your labels how you want.
    While Logic is open go to ~/Library/Preferences and delete
    Quit Logic. I don't think it matters whether you save your project or not. When Logic quits a new plist will be written, and this one WILL have your labels!
    Seems on my machine Logic would not update the IO labels bit of the prefs unless it was writing a complete new prefs file.

  • Opmn logs not being written

    Hi All,
    We are facing an issue.
    No logs are being written to the opmn/logs directory. It was being written correctly till 4th December and then stopped all of a sudden.
    Are there any configuration files which may have been affected.
    Best regards,

    To clarify.
    We are now rotating the logfiles with the linux/unix command logrotate. I suspect that this is what is causing the issue that the logs are note being filled after rotation and we need to restart opmn for the logs to start getting populated.
    So I think we need to configure rotating logs in opmn.xml.
    The Application server version is 10.1.3. This is the log line in our opmn.xml.
    <log path="$ORACLE_HOME/opmn/logs/opmn.log" comp="internal;ons;pm" rotation-size="1500000"/>
    So the question is how do we activate opmn to rotate the log so that we do not need to use logrotate.
    In this document it says that you have to activate ODL for log rotation to work:
    Is this true or can we rotate text logs as well. This is what we would prefer.
    Best regards,
