Location where the RMAN backup output file is saved and the name of the output file.

By default, an output file backup.out is created in the job results directory. You can change the name of the output file as well as the location using this parameter. In order to include the JOB ID in the output file name, you need to set the sQcmd_Bkp_RmanLogFile Additional Setting.

  • QB_NO_MULTIPLEX_STREAM



  • QB_DO_NOT_USE_ORA_CONNECT_STRING

These are optional parameters.
  • If specified, the backup starts only when all the specified number of streams are available. By default, the SnapProtect software reserves as many streams as possible at the start of the backup.
  • Do not multiplex the streams for the same job. Different jobs are multiplexed.
