Customizing Oracle Backup RMAN Scripts

The SnapProtect software generates an RMAN script with the selected CommCell Console options. You can customize the script to include commands and parameters not supported in the CommCell Console. The SnapProtect software uses the customized script when you run the backup from the CommCell Console.

You must include the Oracle recovery catalog to successfully run the customized RMAN script.

Note: If you customize and run a backup script for a selective online full or offline full backup, the backup job is not copied to a selective copy, and not eligible for extended retention.

Note: The first line of the RMAN script must be one of the following lines. There can be no trailing spaces after the "{".

If you want the SnapProtect software to parse and validate the script, use the following line:

run {

If you do not want the SnapProtect software to parse and validate the script, use the following line:

RUN {
