Oracle Hot Backup Script

Oracle Hot Backup Script

Oracle Hot Backup Script


I have installed Oracle 8i in Solaris 2.7. I don't have a script to make hot backups to another disk(not tape), Please help me if any of you have it. Links to other sites which can provide me with one will also do.

Thanks in advance.


RE: Oracle Hot Backup Script

Here is one that I have been using:

set heading off
set feedback on
select 'alter tablespace '¦¦tablespace_name¦¦' begin backup;'¦¦chr(10)¦¦
'host copy '¦¦file_name¦¦' e:\backup'¦¦chr(10)¦¦
'alter tablespace '¦¦tablespace_name¦¦' end backup;'
from dba_data_files;
spool bu.sql
spool off
alter database backup controlfile to trace;
set heading on

This script copies all of my data files to the e:\backup subdirectory.
