Very first step in configuring RMAN for a Backup

DB version:10gR2
I am a DBA supporting applications development and i am not familiar with RMAN. This weekend we are going to Patch 10.2.0.1.0 to 10.2.0.3.0. Before that i am going to take a backup of the entire Database containing around 57 schemas(total of around 600gb).
We don't have Tape drives. I am going to backup this up on three filesystems in the same machine. This instance is not running on ASM. What is the first step i should be doing in configuring RMAN for a backup?

Be careful, three filesystems doesn't necessarily mean the use of three channels. Could be more...could be less.
Are you in a position to shutdown the database? If not, you'll also want to backup the archivelogs with BACKUP DATABASE PLUS ARCHIVELOG. You may also consider creating a Guaranteed Restore Point which would allow you to rollback your database in minutes if the upgrade fails.

  • Configuring rman for dataguard environment.

    Hi all,
    Here we have a dataguard environment with db1 as primary and db2 as physical standby database. We configured dataguard in 10g environments and we are not using grid control. Can anyone provide the steps for configuring rman for incremental backups in this environment? We want to schedule the backups to be taken in standby db, (that is applicable in case of swithover too). In the case of swithover to db2 what all do we need to do in rman manually to resume backups in db1?
    Thanks

    Hello;
    A Standby database is a copy of the Primary so if you try to register it RMAN will probably tell you its already registered. I would start with this :
    Standby based backup
    1. Enable auto backup of the control file and server parameter file. CONFIGURE CONTROLFILE AUTOBACKUP ON.
    2. Skip backups on datafiles already backup. CONFIGURE BACKUP OPTIMIZATION.
    3. Set the archive deletion policy. CONFIGURE DELETION POLICY TO NONE.
    You have to decide on the exact RMAN script you want to use, but since the database is registered you can perform backup on either the Primary or the Standby as the need arises.

  • Configuring RMAN for dataguard.

    Hi all,
    Here we have a dataguard environment with db1(db_unique_name) as primary and db2(db_unique_name) as physical standby database. For both primary and secondary the ORACLE_SID is 'oracledb'.We configured dataguard in 10g environments and we are not using grid control. And now we want to configure rman for incremental backups. We are using a third catalog database to which we registered from primary db successfully. During primary rman configuration it is showing conflicts. Even the changes made in primary RMAN configuration are applied on to the standby too which i think shouldn't happen in this scenario. How to resolve this issue? Is this happening because of the same ORACLE_SID for both primary and secondary? I'm attaching the link of the doc that we followed also the errors and configuration in rman. Can anyone help?

    hi
    what is SBT here?
    CONFIGURE DEVICE TYPE sbt PARALLELISM 3;
    Channel Connections to Cluster Instances with RMAN
    Channel connections to the instances are determined
    using the connect string defined by channel configurations.
    For example, in the following configuration, three channels are allocated using dbauser/[email protected]_name. If you configure the SQL Net service name with load balancing turned on, then the channels are allocated at a node as decided by the load balancing algorithm.
    CONFIGURE DEVICE TYPE sbt PARALLELISM 3;
    CONFIGURE DEFAULT DEVICE TYPE TO sbt;
    CONFIGURE CHANNEL DEVICE TYPE SBT CONNECT 'dbauser/[email protected]_name'Edited by: nisha on Jun 6, 2011 12:27 AM

  • PAL to NTSC... the VERY FIRST step to get off of disc?

    I've got a PAL disc, and I need to transfer the movie to NTSC. Looked through the discussions and can follow the tutorial, but what is the very first step I should take to get the contents of the disc onto my desktop? Should I drag out the Audio_TS and Video_TS folders, or create a quicktime movie on desktop?

    I posted this: http://discussions.apple.com/message.jspa?messageID=9229331#9229331 earlier today. Its a good idea to copy the VIDEO_TS folder to your computer first -speeds up the process quite a bit. You don't need the AUDIO_TS folder, its probably empty anyway.

  • In new iphone 5 very first call getting busy tone for all the numbers

    in new iphone 5 very first call getting busy tone for all the numbers.

    my son had this problem.  I went to the apple store and they wiped out and restored the phone..  They said that was all they could do but that I should call our phone carrier and ask them.  I did.  They asked if in the top left side, next to battery power there was a icon of a half moon.  There was. They said to go in to settings and go to "Do not Disturb" and turn it off.  I did.....problem solved!!! Somehow "do not disturb" was turned on and that is what happens if it is!!
    I hope this helps.

  • Using diskpart as the very first step in TS

    Hi, 
    I want to have a very first in TS as hard drive clean and partitioning it. so once WinPE is downloaded, system reboots, it will check 'IsLaptop' or 'IsDesktop' condition and if its Laptop, it should clean the disk 0 and parition it. I have tried to achieve
    this but i am getting an error. Its a MDT based TS in Configuration manager 2012 R2 (MDT 2013 is integrated). Laptops are encrypted and just need to be wiped and reload without databackup. I feel this is the easiest way to have dispart clean the disk, recreate
    partition based on condition if its laptop. 
    Steps i am doing is :
    1. diskpart. exe /s diskpart.txt - first step in TS, and has condition to run only if 'IsLaptop equals True'. I have created package for diskpart.txt ( i am wondering if this could be an issue, if it tries to download the package on hdd and hdd doesn't have
    partition yet)
    2. set imageosver to 6.1 - since its for windows 7
    3. Format and partition disk 6.1 - will format and create 2 partitions 'OS disk' and 'BDE'
    then other steps starts like Use toolkit package, gather and UDI wizard. 

    You could have the Format/Partition steps run only if the Chassis/Model type = that of a laptop or one of your laptop models.  If those parameters aren't met (e.g. PC is not one of the desktop models or doesn't have a the laptop ChassisTypes), the partition/format
    steps wont' run.
    I've ran into issues when trying to run commandline steps that require files to copy down first.  I have the best luck when the drive(s) are properly cleaned, repartitioned, and formatted first. 
     

  • Workflow stuck at the very first step

    Hi,
    The workflow is started and its stuck at the first step
    this is the very first workflow created in the client
    are there any standard background jobs that should be started for the workflow to proceed ?
    thank you

    hi,
    as venugopal suggested, check whether the event was triggered and then check whether the WF has actually started or not. you can check this using transaction SWEL or SWI1.
    if the event was triggered but WF hasnt started then you might not have activated the event linkage. this can be done in the "basic data" of the WF in the "start events" tab.
    Since you have mentioned that "The workflow is started and its stuck at the first step", probably the WF has started.
    can you specify the error message that you are getting?
    what is the fisrt step in your WF?
    give some details.

  • TS1398 I cannot start to use my new ipad mini as it is stuck at the very first step after restoring my old backup. It says to choose a wifi, I do and then it says 'Unable to connect' There is no options for a password and I cannot access any other screen!

    I have tried going past the first set up stage, still with no wifi. I have then tried restoring the ipad mini, still no wifi available. Both my ipone and Apple Mac have wifi full bars. Please help. I only picked up my new ipad today. I am thinking it may be faulty.
    Lele

    It may be faulty but you should try to activate it first in order to be sure.
    Why don't you activate it using iTunes on the Mac and then troubleshoot the WiFi connection. Connect the Mini to the Mac with the cable and iTunes should startup and take you through activation. If you do not autosync and iTunes des not start up on it's own, then launch it yourself.

  • Grid Control 11g step Repository Configuration running for 24 hours+

    Got through all the prerequisites and am installing GC 11g on an Oracle Linux 5 machine which is also running my repository database instance (11.2.0.1). The GC install went rather smoothly until I hit the 'Repository Configuration' step. It's been sitting there for over a day.
    It does look like it's doing something as running a
    select count(*) from dba_objects where owner = 'SYSMAN';
    the number creeps up.. slowly.. sometimes.. right now it's at 5888.
    No errors in the GC install error log. every half hour or so I am seeing a 'Warning inbound connection timed out ORA-3136' error in my database alert log. I tried setting my inbound_connection_timeout in my listener to 0 as well as updating the sqlnet.ora file, but i still get these now and again. GC doesn't seem to notice or mind. There is nothing else running on this machine (Dell Optiplex 755 4Gb ram 2 cpus).
    I'm just trying to get a feel for how the install is and get familiar with the 11g GC before upgrading our 10g GC..
    any ideas?

    fwiw I am seeing some dismal performance running DDL in the sysman schema..
    for instance in the following example creating a table in the sys schema happens instantly, as does dropping it.. creating the same table in sysman takes about 50 seconds and dropping the table takes about 15 seconds.. weird, eh?
